Genealogical Research 

I offer several different types of genealogical research such as: 

- Saskatchewan Records Search

- Saskatchewan Homestead Records Search

- Canadian Military Records Search 

- Single Index/Database/Archives Search

- Genealogical Photography

- Service Record Binder 

- Custom Searches

Each search type comes with a, free no obligation consultation, written research report and with copies of any documents or photos I can find and obtain. The only exception is the Single Index/Database/Archives Search, results from that search will be emailed to the client. Most copies of documents and photos can be emailed to a client in PDF or JPEG form, but some cannot. (Research Reports are sent in PDF form unless the client specifies otherwise). I do offer paper copies of documents for an additional fee.  For custom searches please contact me so we can come up with a research plan that fits your needs.  

I look forward hearing from you.

Service Record Book 

The Service Record Book is an option for clients who had a military records search done and would like a nice way to display their ancestor's military service. Each book is customized to the clients liking with a custom cover title. The copies of the service record are printed on good quality paper and the book comes with a cardstock cover and plastic back cover, that way they last for a long time. Clients also have the option of having the research report bound in a similar fashion as well. 

Custom Search 

Custom searches are searches that do not fit into one of the other search categories or is an in depth search of an individual or of multiple individuals. These can be longer term projects and family tree building projects.
