Introduction: Ask About our Specials! For a limited time - our Basic "No Frills" Family Tree package - just $750. Includes 10 hours of professional research, completed tree uploaded to your Ancestry account, and a free Pedigree and Genealogy Report. Order yours today and we'll add a Digital Family History Book worth $195 for just $95. You won't be disappointed. :) Updates: 1. We are not handling new Native American genealogy requests to support Tribal enrollment at this time. 2. Take advantage of our free consultation to help us better understand your genealogy goals! -- Hello! Are you an Adoptee or Birth Parent searching for lost biological family? Need help with a Family Research project or understanding your DNA results? Whether you just need some basic guidance or need us to do all the heavy lifting – you name it! We have a ton of experience and we're really good at solving puzzles. Let us help - we’re here for you! :) Here's how we work: - Once we've connected, we'll provide you with a detailed questionnaire and template for you to document what you know of your family tree. The more info you can provide the easier it will be for us to help you effectively, but no worries if you know very little - that is often the situation in adoption cases. We'll also need invitations/access to your DNA results and any FamilyTrees you may have created. - It's important to understand that despite the research effort expended, sometimes an answer just can't be found with the information available at the time. Genealogy research is a little bit like fishing - you can have the best equipment, best bait, best secret spot - but if there aren't any fish... there aren't any fish. We can promise we'll get you as close as we can, and will help you with a list of Next Steps in order to further the research on your project over time. - Each project is unique, and we can promise you that we will use every tool at our disposal to get the answers you're seeking, and will provide you with a detailed Research Tree and Family Booklet suitable for printing and gifting at the end of the project. - Our basic fee to research a single unknown parent is $2000. This fee includes up to 25 hours of professional research and analysis at a discounted rate. There are some economies of scale involved in researching these cases, so we can also discount a second concurrent search, and we are happy to offer any additional promotions available at the time we book your project. Let's discuss your specific situation to determine estimated cost. - Turnaround on most projects is about 4 weeks - 8 weeks for longer, more involved projects - although this can vary if DNA results are not yet available. We ask for 50% at the start-up of your project and the balance halfway through. For projects under 10 hours, we bill in full at the beginning of the project because of the quick turnaround. We do offer PayPal extended terms so you have the option of paying over time if you'd like to take advantage of that option. Let us know if you need additional details. - This fee covers our research time to build a Research Tree, and to locate, store and analyze supporting records in all the research venues we utilize, a standard Gedcom export of the Research Tree and a detailed Family Booklet with images of records suitable for printing or gifting. The research venues we utilize include ancestry.com, myheritage.com, familysearch.org, johngrenham.com, rootsireland.ie, irishgenealogy.ie, and numerous other specialty databases. Out of pocket expenses to purchase original certified copies of birth/death/marriage or other documents you request, and any associated handling, will be billed back on a monthly basis. - We are also available for project work at the rate of $100/hour, in 5-hour increments, with a 5 hour minimum. Let's see how we might be able to work together to achieve your goals - we've been instrumental in reuniting dozens of Adoptees with their Birth parents - every success warms our hearts! Happy clients make us happy too - so let us partner with you! ❤️😊

What a blessing it was to find Catherine. She was all I needed to complete a painful search that led to a great result. First of all, I felt totally confident after speaking with her that she was a professional and knew that it would be possible to get the info needed and if not she could show me how to retrieve the rest. I felt confident after that and it was so helpful that she knew what I was going thru. I actually gave her as much info as I had and she did the rest. In fact I continued my search as well and when I shared it with her , she already had it! When I texted more info later , she was already typing up my final report and a flood of Joy took me instantly. Praise God’s glorious work! Christine, I want you to know what a gift you bring to others with your work if you haven’t already heard it. I figure that you must love it very much. If you haven’t, then that is a crime. My Father struggled for years to do our genealogy and now my plan is to give you his chart and add the things he couldn’t find. I’m busy at the moment but I’m keeping your contact info and we will have some more fun together for sure! I know it’s not a direct descendant but supposedly it goes to Georg Walton, the last signer (he was furthest away) of the Declaration of Independence, who was governor of Florida. His great granddaughter was a Mobil socialite that my grandmother was named after. I’m so happy I found you Best regards, A huge fan David Jenkins

Christine is so sweet and I’m super excited to work with her. She got back to me very soon and was very flexible and understanding, and she also has reasonable prices. I can’t wait to see what I find out about my family history and what she’ll help me discover! She’s helped put my mind and spirit at ease and is giving me hope to what I thought was impossible. Thank you so much Christine! I definitely would recommend DavisDNA & family research to anyone looking to learn more about their background :)

Davis DNA and family went well beyond what I was able to request, they took time out of their day to answer questions for me they didn’t have too and I appreciate that so much. It’s hard to find that in people nowadays because everyone is out for themselves, it was refreshing. Thank you!

Christine responded to my query within minutes and completed the work two days sooner than she’d estimated. She not only researched the great uncle I’d hired her to do but also found out about most of his siblings as well. She was not only prompt and thorough, she was also kind and genuinely interested in my family. I will absolutely use her again if I need more genealogy work done and I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Thank you so much, Audrey - we work hard to delight our customers - I know that sounds corny - but it's true! :)
