Why Choose Me?
Researching family lines started out as a request about Fifteen years ago....
...for our family tree as a project for school. This, very soon escalated into an interesting hobby, but found that it soon became an obsession and is slowly taking over my time and
my life. An idea was passed on and the birth was made, the beginnings of a different type of 'family' which we hope will blossom into something exiting
We have researchers waiting to fulfil your dreams, so don`t get bogged down with wading through endless entries in the record books, let us do that for you.
