Family history can be fascinating and rewarding – but if you’ve ever spent a few hours digging through archives and records, you also know it can be time-consuming and complicated. Where do you start? How do you know the information you find is legitimate? What happens when you hit a dead end in your research?

Many of our genealogy and family history clients come to us because they simply don’t have the time and resources necessary to take a deep dive into their family tree. Our team of expert researchers can help you trace your roots back through multiple generations.

Like our ghostwriting and book writing services, our genealogy services are 100% customizable. You tell us what you want to know and how far back you’d like to go. Here are just a few ways we can help you learn more about your ancestry:

  • Online research. We’ll scour genealogy-focused websites such as,, and FamilySearch, as well as government websites and databases and other online resources. We also have access to exclusive, members-only databases through our membership in genealogy-related organizations such as the International Society of Family History Writers.
  • Fact-checking. Genealogy websites offer a ton of data – but it’s not always easy to tell fact from fiction. Our team has extensive experience doing in-depth historical research, so we can help ensure that all of the information you have is accurate.
  • Interviewing. Living relatives can be valuable sources for names, dates, and important events in your family’s history. Our expert interviewers have decades of experience: We know what questions to ask, and we know how to make interviewees feel comfortable. We also take detailed notes and record each conversation, which we’ll provide to you for your records.
  • In-person research. There’s a wealth of information – from sources such as newspapers, magazines, and microfilm – that simply doesn’t exist online. Our intrepid researchers aren’t afraid of a little old-school library research. But our on-site research isn’t limited to libraries – it isn’t even limited to the United States! Do you have a long line of ancestors from Japan? Do you need marriage records from your Polish great-great-great grandparents? Are you looking for long-lost relatives in Great Britain? We’ve got our passports ready.

The Finished Product: Books, Family Trees, and More

What happens when we’ve collected all of your family’s history? That’s up to you.

Some of our genealogy clients simply want all their compiled information in an editable format like a Word document. Others come to us because they want to create a beautiful family heirloom, such as a coffee table book or custom-designed family tree. Some even want to create their own websites.

If you have a larger project in mind, our genealogy services also make a wonderful add-on to our family history book and autobiography and memoir services.Whatever your goal, and whatever you envision, we’ll work with you to make it happen.

Ghostwriting Client,

I just had the chance to read few pages of your edited version while sitting at the auto dealership for service on my vehicle. I am very impressed and well-pleased with your work. From my perspective, I couldn't ask for a better read. So let's keep up this great work so that we end up with a "great product." I just wanted you to know that I am super-pleased and excited.

Ghostwriting Client,

I had previously sent you an email stating how very much pleased with the book...but, I am not sure whether I fully expressed it. Frankly, the writing of the book is simply outstanding! You and your team have done a wonderful job of creating a very readable and interesting book! I just can't believe how it is all coming together.

Norm, CEO,
