WSJ, 13 June2016 Family Genealogy by Financial Networks Video (After Ads)From Whence "It" Came
- DNA. Yes, as mentioned in the WSJ video, clients will want a package that includes a full DNA analysis.
- Destination Genealogy. Many clients wish to travel overseas for reunions, or visits of origin. Your researcher should have the overseas connections, and preferably multilingual, willing to travel with or meet the family in destinations. You’ve seen this on the popular TV shows like NBC, Who Do You Think You Are?
- Proper Citation. This is a research project. It is imperative for descendants and heirs to have a properly sourced book.
- Hardcover Books. Your family book should include embedded family photos and images of research with text. It’s not enough to just have a family tree. Be sure your researcher is a historian and will include the social history and times of your ancestor for clarification.
- Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). If you wish to have 5 generations or 15 or more, be sure your researcher signs a NDA. Most professional forensic genealogists will offer this as part of their services.
- Anonymous Research. If you choose to be anonymous, your researcher should also be your voice. This is most important in cases of adoption, or other private family relations. For complete privacy we suggest your researcher be a licensed private investigator.
