    Lineage Verification

    $30.00/record

    Description

    I will look at all possible avenues, using the genealogical standard: exhausting all possible resources, and extracting all information from every available source to existing information.

    Where more time may be required to verify further generations, I will inform you in advance.

    Ordering Instructions

    Order minimum is two hours. First hour of service is your deposit amount.
    Two hour blocks will be rendered at a time.

    Please send in your first request for service, a clear objective:
    What exactly are you wishing to happen?
    I will need to know up front why you feel your line needs to be verified.

    I will then reply with what I expect to see in reaching the goal and what will likely be achieved.

    To begin the your lineage verification process I will need the following:
    ~ Existing information from your tree. Either online or as a gedcom file.
    ~ What software program you are currently using to access your family tree.

    Please provide for me what it is you or your family has tried in your research efforts and why you feel it did not provide you with the information you needed. The more information you have on, siblings, and off-spring, including all vital dates, places are critical. If you have original document images, those are critical to verifying and uncovering specific facts.

We ask new providers to complete a test project in order to become familiar with how Genlighten works. Teresa was quick to catch on and prompt to respond! And, as an added bonus she shared a bit about one of her Chicago ancestors in a place-holder report that could have just said "This is a test report." :) Teresa, welcome! We look forward to working with you. Cyndy

I have had the wonderful opportunity to be taught how to do genealogy from Teresa. She is very patient and thorough. She has experience with both one on one teaching and group lecturing. She is very detailed. Her knowledge of research methods, accuracy verification techniques, and documentation make me confident in my record keep. She is my go to authority whenever I have questions or am at a point where I do not know how to move forward. She is familiar with all of the common research sites and their ins and outs as well of lesser known sites.

Teresa helped me with my family history and was very knowledgeable about the process of finding my ancestors. I have a difficult line in Hungary and she was helpful to give me resources to research and how to move forward with the help she provided. I appreciated the balance that she helped me along with the work, without doing it all herself, although she likely could have. She gave me the resources to succeed and was a support along the way when I hit roadblocks, assessing the names and situations in ways I had not thought about. She passionate about family history and spent hours helping me in order to further assist my questions and my own work. She is a knowledgeable, caring, individual who doesn't get frustrated with the sometimes frustrating, but always awesome work of family history.

Introduction:
Hourly contracts are the best use of your money and my time, in your behalf. You decide in advance, the quantity of hours you would like used in research, & that will be honored.

Financial Commitment:
Contract minimum is 2 hours.
A one hour minimum is the required deposit.

Appointments:
Additional time can be locked in my appointment book, in the event you would like to reserve a commitment ahead of others. Appointments will be taken in the order they are reserved.

Minimum Contract Information:
First & foremost, a defined goal of what you are looking for is how we will begin.
Providing me with as much available information about the ancestor you are seeking will help my efforts in acquiring efficient results as quickly as possible. Name, birthdates, places, family connections, existing sources etc.. The more information you provide, the faster the information can be found, and the results returned back to you.

Results:
In return, a summary of my work will be provided. Sources are always provided first and foremost, as well as images of those sources. A free account in Family Search will be the best place to provide you all the downloadable information I provide for you. I will create this account with you, thereby giving you full access to the work as it happens each day, in the allotted time used for research.

I am excited to work with you & look forward to finding new discoveries with & for your family.
