RootzFinder went above and beyond during their research by making a connection to a living relative. The connection was invaluable and I am so happy.

a story from a professional genealogist

"There are many reasons for hiring a professional genealogist. A recent case involved correctly identifying the father of a young man named Samuel.  The only information I was given was an approximate date of birth and the fact that Samuel did not live with his parents when he was a child.  I started with locating young Samuel on the 1930 US Census.  The information I extracted from this record was combined with the information I was able to pull from the city directories that covered a 20 year time span. This information, coupled with the stories I heard from various family members allowed me to correctly identify Samuel’s mother. With this important clue in place I was then able to find her in the city directories, along with her spouse, who was potentially Samuel’s father.  I was then able to locate a military draft card which was the final clue I needed to confirm that this was indeed Samuel’s father.”
