Why choose Ancestor Discovery?

Finding elusive ancestors

Do you have an ancestor you can't find in a census? Are you unable to locate his or her marriage record or birth/baptism? When you do a search for your ancestor, are there so many entries that you can't work out how to narrow them down or know which ones to choose?

Extensive research

Would you like help researching your family tree and receiving a professional summary which can be handed on down through the generations? Would using DNA with traditional research methods help break down a brick wall?

Publishing your family's story

Have you always wanted to preserve family stories in an heirloom book, one that your children and grandchildren will enjoy reading? Do you have old photographs that you would like to restore to their former glory?

Unlocking mysteries

Have you been told stories about being related to noble families, royalty, convicts, other criminals or a celebrity? Are there family mysteries which you would like solved, but just don't have the time for research?

If you answered YES to any of the questions, then help is at hand. Our professional family history researchers can work with you. We review what you already know about your ancestors. We then conduct in-depth research and analysis, using the millions of records available to us, to reveal your ancestry.
