A complete research report will be compiled and sourced with all available records. A narrative report (NGSQ style) will be provided outlining the findings and the subsequent conclusions drawn, as well as suggestions for future research. A pedigree chart will also be included in the final report, along with records (digital or paper) collected by the genealogist. -Record searching and ordering.

Any records ordered will be forwarded to the client at the conclusion of the project. -Forensic genealogy performed for attorneys, financial institutions and oil and gas acquisition companies. -Lineage society application preparation.
