Testimonials:
"My genealogy project had ground to a halt before I started working with Janice. Then it accelerated to warp speed, and here I am submitting my application for citizenship, much sooner and with better documentation than I ever imagined. I would never have arrived to this point without Janice s help, for which I am very grateful." - Brian R.
"Thank you for all the work you've been putting into researching my family! It is exciting to see pieces of their lives and learn where they came from." - Wendy B.
"I have included all your research. It made quite a difference." - Daniel K.
