We all have them. The dreaded genealogy brick wall. You might be trying to discover the town of origin for a recent Irish immigrant, an illusive maiden name for your Colonial 6x great-grandmother, or a great-grandfather that goes missing after the 1910 census. We have some of the world’s best genealogists available to offer you personalized assistance.

You will start with a 15 minute session with one of our generalists. These are genealogists with decades of experience working with people one-on-one to help them figure out what to do next. They will make sure we understand exactly what your brick wall is, what you have already done to try to solve it, and they may even suggest some general things you might have missed. At the end of your session, they will direct you to the specialist who knows the ins and outs of research in the specific location where your brick wall exists and get you on your way to a solution.
