Elusive Ancestor Hunter

Here at the Elusive Ancestor Hunter, I believe that all walls will be broken down eventually. I have over 35 years experience in genealogy, yes, I did start the family history research  before the internet became popular and computers were just starting out.  What this means to you is that I have a vast experience in going that extra mile; courthouses, cemeteries, libraries are all very helpful and a needed part of finding those not so easy ancestors.  Not everything is online believe it not.  Sometimes, you may actually need to take a field trip or as I like to say “Going on an Ancestor Quest”.   Now, that is not to say I don’t use the internet.  I do and love to use any archive online that I can.

In Europe a few archives are online, you will just need the ability to translate languages and gothic handwriting at times, but it is doable. If you have ancestors in the countries I have listed below,I am totally willing to help you track them down.  I can either give you ideas on where you should go next in your research or do it for you.  I will track down your ancestors for you using all means possible.

My research specialities include United States research (with Michigan and Ohio repositories nearby), Canada, the British Isles, France, Germany, Italy, Alsace, Finland and Sweden.  I use many databases including: FamilySearch.org, Ancestry.com, Scotlandspeople.gov.uk,  the Alsace and French Archives, the Genealogical Society of Finland have a great site, the Swedish Church records are also online.  As a volunteer for the Family History Center in Adrian, Michigan, I can get on loan, the actual microfilm from all over the world; whatever filmings the church have available (over 3.5 billion images), so I am pretty sure we can find something for you.

If you feel we can help you, please schedule a consultation and we can decide how best to fulfill your genealogy needs.  Remember – Time is Ancestors!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  2. I have been surfing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like
    yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made
    excellent content as you did, the internet will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.
