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 South Carolina records, for
example, are only available to researchers who physically
visit repositories at the local level in SC, at the federal
level in Washington, D.C., or at the LDS Family History
in Utah. Our genealogy researchers have
access to all of these records and are ready to assist
you with your genealogy search in SC.  So, if you

internet searches at Ancestry.com, 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.
