80 Hours Research
You and a Research Consultant work together to design a project to meet your research objectives, for example, tracing the ancestry of your four grandparents.
- We review the background information that you provide, as well as prior research reports. Researchers prepare the research plan to address the goals.
- Each completed project is compiled into a printed booklet that includes a research report, research calendar, images of supporting documents, a pedigree chart and family group records.
- Recommendations for future research are included. This will help us keep track of any objectives that will require more work in a possible future project.
- DNA projects focus on analyzing your DNA in relation to your specific objective(s). You may request that we order a DNA test kit for you as part of your project.
- Projects will use available traditional sources, and if DNA tests results could help break through brick walls, this valuable resource will be used, too.
- We use records found in various repositories, including the world-famous Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, as well as available online records from other sources.
- As needed, we will used one of our many onsite researchers to access local records in courthouses, genealogical societies, county record offices, diocesan archives, museums, state libraries, or state archives.
