You've Hit a Brick Wall. Now What?

Most people who have spent time working on their genealogy have at least one line that seems to be at a complete dead end – known as a “brick wall” – that they need help breaking down. Professional genealogists have experience solving difficult genealogical problems, and have the knowledge and skills necessary to get past them. Many brick walls require in-depth research in land, tax and/or probate records, and most of those records are still not available online. The Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah houses the largest collection of genealogical records in the world, so a genealogist who has ready access to that facility, in addition to a network of researchers for record access worldwide, will be able to search many additional records that you may not have access to.

We’ve partnered with Legacy Tree Genealogists, the world’s highest client-rated genealogy research firm to offer exclusive savings on professional genealogy research. Legacy Tree helps clients worldwide discover their roots and personal history through records, narratives, and DNA.
