Testimonials:
If you are looking to hire someone to do some work on your family tree, I highly recommend @ChrisMPaton who finished a great report for me! (Colin MacDonald, Greenock); - Just a wee note to thank you so much for all of your hard work on our behalf in connecting my husband to the 18th Century poet James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd. We had always suspected there was a link but could never get through our brick wall. Thank you so much (Janet McQueen, Clackmannan); - Hi Chris, I just cant thank you enough for all the wonderful work you have done on the Rose Family. I am absolutely delighted!! You so obviously know just where to find everything and it is a pleasure to read (Bronwen Tickner, England); - The package arrived on Christmas Eve and was a great hit with my nephews who are interested in their forbears. They were fascinated when I handed them the folder and said, this is your family tree on your Playfair side, and you re in it! Two hours later and all I d heard was look, we were here, and we were there, and I didnt know?! it was great! (Susan Playfair, Cairo, Egypt); - Thanks for everything so far. I ve enjoyed hearing from you. Your reports are intelligent and informative a rare combination today when most people seem to have forgotten how to write! (Carol Fritz, Alabama, USA); - You are worth your weight in Laphroaig and dark chocolate!! I cant believe you found those baptisms, I really wasnt holding out much hope. Thank you once again I havent stopped smiling yet. My husband says he will toast you tonight with a large dram of 10 year Laphroaig (duty free)! (Ruth Blair, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada); - That was definitely an entertaining read!! (Scott Fleck, Nova Scotia, Canada); - I was immediately impressed with your accessability, and your prompt and detailed responses to my questions. Within an hour or two of each message sent off, you would respond with helpful information, and I really enjoyed reading the information you unearthed for me (Michael McQuary, Washington State, USA); - A wonderful research team, leaving no stone unturned. I recommend them highly to anyone who is looking for family in Scotland. Some things have been answered and as in Genealogy, some new questions have arisen. It s what makes this adventure so much fun (Maureen Marella, Las Vegas)
