Family Genealogy Notebooks Kate and Mike have prepared about their ancestors.
Family Genealogy Notebooks like the ones above are part of the standard $500 fee for a search. These notebooks are well loved and appreciated by our clients. A three ring binder allows clients to insert copies of their family history (e.g. letters, scrapbook articles, photos, bible pages). We do not know of any other genealogical research service that provides a product like this. Additional Family Genealogy Notebooks can be purchased as gifts for other family member at a cost of $50 per notebook.
I contacted Kate and Mike after I was looking at an Irish site that was discussing Irish ancestors. I asked for help in researching my 2nd great grandfather. I have been looking for him for years. After just a few days they contacted me and started sending me information. They found him, his spouse, and four of their children and their descendants. I was absolutely thrilled.
I will be in Ireland for the month of August and am meeting some of my Grey relatives. This has meant so much to me. Kate and Mike are still at work for me and recently sent information on where some of my ancestors are buried. I will be able to visit their grave while I am in Ireland! I never dreamt they would have so much success, and they are still waiting for info on another gravesite.
I highly recommend them. Kate and Mike have done an awesome job for me. I now have info that takes me back to the mid and late 1700’s. 100 years further back in time! Thanks Kate and Mike. Carmel S. Pomeroy, OH
