    Before I am able to begin, I will need the basic information for you, your parents, and your grandparents. I must be able to provide me with general birth and death dates and locations to get me back to at least 1940-1930. This does not need to be exact, Estimates are fine.

Jessica did a really good job! She made sure we had a sound and reliable starting point, as researchers should do, and made a clear project proposal. I also had the impression she made some preliminary work to be fairly certain that some positive findings would be made in the project.

Jessica did a great job solving some of my family mysteries and correcting some of my errors. As a control freak, what I liked best was that she gave me a step by step summary of her work. And—as a bonus—she found some extremely useful primary source documents. Happy Mother's Day to me! So glad I treated myself. Sue from DC

Very, very good researcher.

May 2019


I am so pleased with Jessica’s work that I don’t tell anybody about her because I need to keep her as my secret weapon.

I have never met anyone who is as capable and thorough and devoted to fact-finding as well as never committing the cardinal sin in this line of work: drawing conclusions that should not be drawn.

She is a stickler for thorough research methods, and works incredibly quickly.

Sheridan H.

Research Client


Over the past 5 years, I have benefited from Jessica's exemplary genealogical services. Jessica has created accurate and high quality online trees to view, magnificent ancestry books and keepsake discs for me and my family. As an adoptee, she discovered biological lineage for my brother and I. Jessica has used her magnificent work to create adoptive, married and biological trees for family gifts and personal knowledge.

Jessica is prompt, honest and workable with my budget. Her commitment to customer satisfaction is excellent! I love how she communicates quickly, patiently and clearly! Jessica accomplishes goals we set. She engages with clients and appreciates the Wonder of discovery! She makes genealogy fun!

It is always a positive experience and joy to work with Jessica to discover one's Roots-it is truly the Gift of a Lifetime! Try it! You will be glad you did!

    • Ancestor Report, Family group sheets, and pedigree charts as needed.

    Upon completion of the research project, I will create a preview of a 20 page, printed and bound book to showcase your research project. Upon your review and approval of the preview, I will then submit the order of your book. Please allow at least 30 days for processing, printing, and shipping of your Family History Book once the order is placed.

    Ordering Instructions

    Before I am able to begin, I will need the basic information for you, your parents, and your grandparents. I must be able to provide me with general birth and death dates and locations to get me back to at least 1940-1930. This does not need to be exact, Estimates are fine. I mainly need a general idea of the time and location.

    If you are able to provide photos of your family members, I can include them in the Family History Book to make the book more personal. I can also add any personal family stories or memories into your family tree as well to create a unique family history for you.

    Disclaimer: This type of project is NOT suited for those who are looking to discover their biological parents in cases of adoption. Adoption cases are very difficult and involve the court system. Jessica’s Genealogy Research Service does not accept adoption cases where the adoption records have not been released to the client and the birth parents names are not already known.

I am willing to work with any budget. I will perform as little as 1 hour of research up to an unlimited amount of hours over time. I am more than willing to break a large project into smaller more affordable blocks. Pre-payment of agreed upon blocks of time are required.

Please be aware that by hiring me for your project, you are agreeing to pay for my for my time spent on your project, not for the perceived outcome. I will work with you to pin down your goals and will work hard to meet those goals. BUT there are times when information cannot be found. In those cases, you still are responsible to pay for the hours used to search every avenue possible to make sure the information cannot be found.

Please be aware that oral history does not always agree with the actual records found. In such cases, what the records indicate is what I will report. You also need to be aware that in doing genealogy research, and more especially in doing DNA work, it is possible to discover shocking information that can have an emotional impact on lives. I will not hide such details if I discover them. Therefore, please be sure you comfortable with the fact that unknown things may or may not be discovered.

Jessica did a really good job! She made sure we had a sound and reliable starting point, as researchers should do, and made a clear project proposal. I also had the impression she made some preliminary work to be fairly certain that some positive findings would be made in the project.

Jessica already did one round of research for me and now she’s dug a little deeper into my Scottish heritage. So worthwhile!

Jessica did a great job solving some of my family mysteries and correcting some of my errors. As a control freak, what I liked best was that she gave me a step by step summary of her work. And—as a bonus—she found some extremely useful primary source documents. Happy Mother's Day to me! So glad I treated myself. Sue from DC

Very, very good researcher.

I am so pleased with Jessica’s work that I don’t tell anybody about her because I need to keep her as my secret weapon.

I have never met anyone who is as capable and thorough and devoted to fact-finding as well as never committing the cardinal sin in this line of work: drawing conclusions that should not be drawn.

She is a stickler for thorough research methods, and works incredibly quickly.

Over the past 5 years, I have benefited from Jessica's exemplary genealogical services. Jessica has created accurate and high quality online trees to view, magnificent ancestry books and keepsake discs for me and my family. As an adoptee, she discovered biological lineage for my brother and I. Jessica has used her magnificent work to create adoptive, married and biological trees for family gifts and personal knowledge.

Jessica is prompt, honest and workable with my budget. Her commitment to customer satisfaction is excellent! I love how she communicates quickly, patiently and clearly! Jessica accomplishes goals we set. She engages with clients and appreciates the Wonder of discovery! She makes genealogy fun!

It is always a positive experience and joy to work with Jessica to discover one's Roots-it is truly the Gift of a Lifetime! Try it! You will be glad you did!
