Professional Genealogical Services is a Sole Proprietorship. Before starting the business service, I had been doing genealogical research for close to 20 years. During this time I developed a special interest in Southern Native Research.I've learned over the years there is never an ending place in your own personal research. You must decide where to stop in your own search. If you need help in getting started, brick walls, Native research, or other area's please feel free to contact me about your genealogical needs. Always note there are never any guarnatee's in finding all your ancestors. With my service, you will always receive a qualified conclusion with the weight of the evidence available at the time of service and sources cited.
