Generations Detective is a Genealogy Research Firm. We are genealogy research specialists with experience in several areas of interest. We are proficient in Heir Location, Personal Genealogy, On-site Research, National Archives Research, and Public Presentations.
Heir Location: Forensic genealogy takes the combined efforts of many disciplines, abstract thinking, and sheer determination. Our firm has successfully located living heirs to estates. In this highly competitive field we have emerged as a leader in our area. We’ve done background checks and genealogies on potential heirs to estates in order to include or exclude them form probate. We offer our services to personal representatives, executors, administrators, banks, insurance companies and other court-recognized persons and entities.
Personal Genealogies: Our passion is genealogy. We have been researching personal genealogies for more than 20 years.
Our history of accuracy and correctness has earned us a solid reputation. We have been hired for many projects both big and small. We have also been contracted to examine previous work in order to confirm or correct previous research. We have successfully researched Swedish, German, English, and Italian Genealogies.
On-Site Research: Generations Detective has proven ourselves to be tenacious researchers. We have successfully located files that other researchers could not find. We have experience in County Courthouses, Local Archives, Libraries, and Churches. We locate vital records (birth, death, marriage), local land records, wills, news articles, divorce and other court proceedings.
National Archives and Records Administration Research: We have hundreds of hours of research experience at National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Our researchers have graduated the National Institute of Genealogical Research that is held at Archives I in Washington DC. Understanding the NARA system is a skill unto itself. Our researchers have found countless Civil War Pension files, Japanese Interment Records, Land Entry Papers, Bounty Land Warrants and Applications, Original Passport Applications, State Department files, and Civil War Soldier Medical Records.
Public Presentations: Our researchers and genealogists thoroughly enjoy passing along the knowledge and experiences that they have gained along the way. Some of our favorite topics include Military Records, Japanese Internment Records, Land Records, and Civil War Files. One of our researchers has been published in a national trade magazine and websites. Our researcher routinely contribute articles and content to local and state society newsletters.
