The first time I corresponded with JJ of Ancestree I was impressed with her enthusiasm. What I was asking her to do, was to help in locating my father's side of the family. I knew nothing. She said that was right up her alley and loved doing it. We exchanged emails and she gave me her terms and what to expect. I accepted. That same day she worked on getting set up with my DNA accounts. When completed she started sleuthing. Over the next weeks she began building my tree. My goodness, I had no idea that I had so many DNA relatives. She was fun to work with and very patient. Genealogy is way over my head but she took the time to coach me as best she could. I recommend her highly. Vick

JJ is literally the best thing that has happened to our family. I had a one night stand with a man that I did not know 14 years ago that resulted in pregnancy. I was young and didn’t have a clue on how to try and find that man! I had a son who is now 13. His whole life, all he has ever wanted was to know who his father was. (I was honest with him with every question he has asked especially when “I don’t know who he is” wasn’t good enough because he learned about the birds and the bees at school from his friends, unfortunately and that answer just didn’t make sense to him anymore. Oops!!). I googled genealogist in my area and after going through all of them thoroughly, I set my heart on JJ!! I reached out to her after reading all of her reviews, and she responded that same day. I told her our situation and she got to work! JJ never judged me and only spoke positively about the whole situation which was very very important to me! She was able to find his father in about 2 weeks!!!! I was astonished!!!! And a quick google search led me to his Facebook to get his number and I reached out!!! He obviously had no clue, but now he knows!!! He is processing this information of course, but regardless of the outcome of his actions, my son finally has the answers he has DREAMED about! He knows who his father is. He is a real person now.... not “the unknown” and that right there is the most amazing thing!!!! JJ has made my son the happiest he has ever been in a very long time! I wish I was able to upload the video of me telling him. It makes me cry every time I watch it. You can literally see the pain drip off of his face and the relief finally hit him!!!! I will never be able to thank her enough! I have told her this already, but she has the most amazing job. She connects people to their most family and that is incredible!!!!

100% satisfied. I'm 70 years old and with JJ's knowledge and commitment to solving my riddle, she was able to identify my biological father. She is a true professional and is passionate when it comes to helping locate unknown family. I whole heartedly recommend her to solve your mysteries. Thank you again JJ.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I accept payment at the conclusion of the project.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The client supplies me with information they have and then pay upon the conclusion of work. Projects are generally within 4 weeks. I am a quick communicator and will aptly reply to any communication throughout the project.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Most of my clients have been men or women in their 60’s who were adopted, or have had parents who were adopted. I’ve helped over 4 dozen individuals in the past year identify their family through DNA. This is incredibly life changing and I’m so honored to be on this journey with you.
