Recent Testimonial

J Taylor Thetford (November, 2016)

“Ancestor Hunters promised results and delivered them seamlessly. I had been unsuccessfully searching for my grandfather for 25 years. I tried all of the data searches. I scanned the web. I needed help. Within a few days Ancestor Hunters actually located him — his birth and death certificate, and ended this chapter of my work. I strongly recommend Ancestor Hunters work to anyone that has hit a 'brick wall' in their research.”
