About us & how we find dead people

We "unpuszzle your past", so you don't have to.   And, while historical research does not always have a guaranteed outcome, we do our utmost to fit the pieces together, thus providing our clients with as needed genealogical research support, both remotely and in person, including developmental report writing, both formal and informal, as well as personally conducting all copy writing and proof-editing of research reports for clients, transcription services and archive preservation, along with any online and printed documentation for the company, including publications, manuals, and correspondence.
