  • Naomi is AMAZING… I have been engaged in genealogical research for 45 years, and in all my years of research, rarely have I come across someone who works with such a high degree of professionalism, efficiency and speed. Her level of expertise in the UK is unmatched.

  • You unlocked a door for our family. What we found behind it was beyond our greatest hopes. From knowing only the name of my great-grandfather, we now have many details about him and his 8 siblings, their parents and even their grandparents.

  • I’m stunned. I don’t know what I expected but already I’m amazed… and you say we have just begun to scratch the surface. Thank you.
