Actual Research: Success is usually measured by results; however, in genealogy success is using correct methodologies, research techniques combined with experience. There is no guarantee of results even with the best researcher, however, a researcher will determine the best approach, which records exist and analyze all the information resulting in valid and sound recommendations for further successful research.  TG has 27 years of experience and will provide the best possible positive experience.

 
Research Structure:  Each line contains one (1) family surname called a pedigree line.  Each research project will focus on one family surname at a time, of course if multiple families are in the same area, it can be expanded to include those family surnames in that locality. 

 

The Research Project 

  • Project Request: Detailed instructions of research to be conducted.
  • Data Input & Sifting: Analyzing your current documents and research and entering them into a genealogical software program.  Documents, Photos, audio and video can be added you digital genealogical database.
  • Summary Sheet:  An outline of objectives, results and future recommendations.
  • Research Calendar: A listing of all sources searched with proper citations
  • Documents: Copies of all documents attained from the research. These can be added to your electronic database.

  • Electronic format/gedcom: All data is entered and stored on our sever as well as providing you with a copy on a floppy or burned to a CD.
  • Paper Copies:  All pedigree charts and family group sheets are printed and compiled with the documentation.

  • Finished Project: All the above put in a folder or binder either delivered in person or mailed with the invoice.
