Genetic Genealogy Services

When you engage a conventional genealogist you’ll likely get a notebook full of reports. What you’ll get from the Family History Detectives™ at FHD Media are narratives and beautiful curated photos, maps and illustrations presented in books and electronic media.

We were founded to help families get their genealogy records out of their computers and into their everyday lives to touch, look at, enjoy and share.

We love sharing this work with people that have never looked into their family history before. The delight and surprise that we encounter each time we do never gets old.

And we equally love working with fellow researchers. We genetic genealogists are a passionate breed. If you have the bug, you have the bug. And everyone could use a hand from time to time breaking through brick walls or getting a second opinion on a proposed ancestor.

“You have helped me more than you know. I would still be trying to figure out who my grandfather’s father is if not for you. I smile every time I see a descendant of my new ancestor in my DNA matches.”   – T.B.
