Did you know that millions of genealogy records are NOT available on the Internet?

Many people are unaware that many important records which are crucial to their family tree search
cannot be found online. Many North Carolina records, for example, are only available to researchers
who physically visit repositories at the local level
in NC, at the federal level in Washington, D.C., or
at the LDS Family History Library in Utah. Our
genealogy researchers have access to all of these
records and are ready to assist you with your
genealogy search in NC.

Rootsweb, and other online databases and web sites,
you may have reached a brick wall because you're
missing out on the literal gold mine of records available
to our genealogists  on microfilm, in books, and in other published works at these important locations.

 Many genealogical records related to your ancestry search, important records like family wills, court records,
  obituaries, death certificates, military records and land deeds are generally not available online and can
  only be obtained by mailing research requests to
places like local public libraries or cemeteries, or
by visiting the LDS Family History Library in Utah.
These records are critical to any comprehensive
ancestry search and should not be overlooked if
high quality and thorough research results are to be
achieved during your project. For these and other
reasons, it's sometimes a great idea to hire a
professional genealogist to assist you with
your genealogy search.
