Virginia

Family History Library
in Utah. Contact our genealogists today to learn how we might help you with your

About Our Virginia Research Team

If you would like a professional genealogist to undertake
 a tailor-made genealogy search for you and your family,
please contact us today to learn  more about our unique
ancestry research services. Our researchers are looking
 forward to assisting you with your Virginia family
tree search.

Our Virginia genealogy research team consists of
expert genealogists who live and work in Virginia
(doing research at the Virginia Historical Society,
Library of Virginia, etc.), another group that works in
 the U.S. capital in Washington, D.C. (at places like the
U.S. National Archives and Library of Congress), and
a third team of researchers that works full time at the
LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake  City, Utah.

The records collection of the Family History Library is
the single most important resource for family tree research
since it consists of literally billions of genealogy records
from all parts of the globe, making it the largest and most
important collection of genealogical information available
in the world. Included in the Family History Library's
collections are literally millions of genealogical records
related to the state of VA which can be a great help to
your ancestry search. Click here to read what our
clients are saying about our genealogists and our
unique family tree research services.

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 Fairfax records, for example, are only available to  researchers who physically
visit repositories at the local level in VA, 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 VA.

So, if you have limited your past family tree research
to exhaustive 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.
