What our clients are saying . . .

Linda did an outstanding job! I had been trying to find my relative's birth parent using his DNA test results in Ancestry.com for years! I had hit a brick wall. With Linda's tremendous knowledge of what those DNA matching percentages mean, she was able to locate my relative's birth parent in about 24 hours, and confirmed it the next day through more matches that she found by hunting through family trees and records on Ancestry.com (and other sources). Linda is easy to talk to and answered all of my questions. She did SO much research in such a short time! I hired her on a Friday afternoon, and by Sunday, the birth parent was confirmed. Linda kept me informed on her progress. I highly recommend her to anyone needing genealogical research.  - Patricia H.

Linda is excellent! Before entering into any contract I am crystal clear about my expectations as I want to make sure my project is a good fit for the selected freelancer. Linda answered numerous inquiries and through that exchange, I knew she had the appropriate skill set so I hired her for this project. Linda not only helped me discover missing pieces of my family history but also performed the project with enthusiasm and passion for genealogy research. She is an excellent communicator and consistently updated me with progress. I would recommend her services.  - Shannon D.

Linda is enthusiastic and very good at what she does! I loved working with her on my project and will - WITHOUT A DOUBT - be working with her again!

I highly recommend Linda! Our project was not easy, and Linda never gave up. She tirelessly worked hard, while consistently staying in contact and providing me updates.

I wish her the best and great success in her continued endeavors! - Mike K.

Linda took a real interest in my search for my biological parents. She had a compassion for things in my ancestry that she was very careful to share until she knew I could process it. She recommended relatives that enjoy ancestry ending up connecting with a cousin and large ancestry trees. -  Ron P.

Linda is part detective and part angel. As an adoptee, I had spent decades searching for my birth families. Linda plunged in not just with incredible expertise – her mind is always working! – but also with compassion and enthusiasm.  It was as if she felt every up and down with me. Today, thanks to her, I have found the answers I always longed for – and I have gained a sense of identity and peace … and four sisters!!!! Thank you, Linda. You are a blessing. - Andrea F.
