You are related to everyone else on the planet!
Only 5 to 10% of genealogical records are online. We specialize in New England research and can be your feet on the ground.
Transcriptions, photocopies and certified copies: We offer more than just records retrieval. Many times you will need an experienced researcher to identify your records.
We have access to:
- National (NARA)
- State Archives
- Vital Records
- Public & Private
- Special Collections
Cities & Towns:
- Town Halls
- Historical Societies
Though only 5 to 10% of records are online, that comes to over 10 billion records. We're here to help you separate the wheat from the chaff.
Facts & Myths
We have been working with digital genealogy records for over 25 years. We verify the facts and sources and debunk the myths. The last thing you want is for your genealogy to be a work of fiction.
Over a million new digital records are made available every week!
Unlock your DNA
DNA results are now an integral part of a genealogist's toolkit. The use of y-DNA, mitochondrial and autosomal data can be used to break through those brick walls.
Adding a new dimension
We will help you understand what your results mean and how they are relevant to you and your family history.
We can help you with:
- Traces the paternal line
- Only men can be tested
- Paternal ancestral origins
- Traces the maternal line
- Both women and men can be tested
- Maternal ancestral origins
- Traces all ancestors
- Both women and men can be tested
- Results are valid only 5-6 generations back
The plot thickens
You may already have a death certificate for your ancestor, why get cemetery information? You never know who you might find buried in the same plot or nearby plots.
Cradle to Grave
We offer stand-alone cemetery research or ask for our Cradle to Grave service for your ancestor.
Not everyone on the gravestones are in the plot and not everyone in the plot are on the gravestones!
Where did you come from?
Your ancestors have been migrating since they could walk. Learn more about your clan, your tribe and your origins.
Where have your kin been?
Our Migration Mapping service will change your focus from nationality to cultural origins. Find your inner Celt, Viking or Native American.

10 degrees of separation
New England is one of history's genealogical bottlenecks. All New Englanders are at most 10th cousins.
Nearly 25% of the world's population are descendants of Charlemagne!
Sharing what we love
We love genealogy and we live to talk about our experiences. We offer a variety of lectures, hands on classes (upcoming) and one-on-one services. We can even craft a presentation to meet your needs.
