Genetic genealogy is my specialty and involves the use of DNA testing, in combination with traditional genealogical methods, to infer relationships between individuals and find ancestors. It's also used to determine the level and type of the genetic relationship between living individuals to establish parental connections.
With these services, I will provide an analysis and comparison of your genetic results and matching relatives, then use these results to recreate the unknown family trees for those searching for biological parents and family members.
Why Choose Branches in Time?
With Branches in Time Genealogy, my goal is to deliver exceptional results for all your family history needs. I consider you and your ancestors as family, as we all fit into the greater, world-family tree. Know that, in working with me, each ancestor and family member is handled with dignity and the respect they deserve.
My work can be highly emotional yet incredibly satisfying. My clients are generally saddled with powerful feelings, great needs, and oftentimes, with deep secrets, uncertainty, and questions they might be troubled or even embarrassed to share.
Confidentiality is paramount with me, and you the client, remain in control at all times. I am honored to join you and help guide your journey into the past, so that we may, together, enrich your future with the knowledge you seek.
Attention to Detail
In the genealogy profession, even the slightest details can aid in making discoveries or turn the entire work off track. I am very detail-oriented and abide by the Genealogical Proof Standard, as provided by the Board for Certification of Genealogists, to ensure credibility.
From the very beginning, I want to get to know you as an individual, to best understand your case and your goals. We personally work with you through the process, getting to know you as well as your family history.
It's important to me that you understand what it is that I'm doing at all times and so I try my best to keep you involved throughout my work on your case. If I am assisting you on an adoption or paternity case, I make sure to check in with you regularly, to provide you support through what can be a very emotional and stressful time.
I work together with you, to determine what you are looking for, and decide what information you are hoping to find. Thanks to technology, such as Skype, I am able to meet regularly with you to give updates and allow you to decide upon any contract additions.
To ensure your understanding and preservation of your history, I provide my findings to you in a professional, organized manner, via typed findings reports, pedigree charts, etc. I have many options to fit your budget, so don't hesitate to reach out!
