Do your roots dead end (g) here?

Genealogy is the study of family descent - recording the history of your ancestors. Birth certificates, marriage certificates and death certificates are the primary documents used in building your ancestral tree.
I really enjoy doing genealogy research for clients and am ready to conduct a thorough genealogy search for you. My research has been successful in a dozen countries and many states and I am probably most helpful to people needing help in my local area that includes Monmouth County and New Jersey. My experience is in searching many sources in Monmouth County, including records held in historical libraries, county archives, court and surrogate office records, deeds and mortgages, cemeteries, newspapers and more. I can find copies of births, baptisms, marriage certificates, census records, military files, employee records and more. References from satisfied customers are available on request.

Did you check to see if your ancestor filed a Last Will and Testament? How about property - did they buy, sell or inherit real estate in Monmouth County? I can search for all these documents and more, and sometimes they are very revealing. Want a picture of a gravestone? Need a copy of a birth certificate? An obituary? Please email or call me at (732) 239-0118. I can provide you with impressive ancestral charts and descendant reports with facts and sources quoted. Searches are not limited geographically and I am quick to respond.

I received an MBA from Fairleigh Dickinson University and am a member of Monmouth County Historical Association and have been doing genealogy research since before the Internet came to be, with experience in Monmouth County, Ocean County and New Jersey. The genealogy research fee is $30/hour plus out-of-pocket expenses for copies, fees, postage, etc. I have given lectures and written articles on genealogy resarch and am available as guest speaker.

I volunteered as the former president of Holmdel Historical Society for six years. Currently I am the full time Records Analyst at Monmouth County Archives, where I enjoy serving the public research requests.
