How I Can

Help You

Identifying heirs

As a forensic genealogist, I specialize in reconstructing complicated family relationships to identify heirs and next of kin. I work with attorneys and others to locate missing and unknown heirs.

Military repatriation

I assist in identifying next of kin and other family members of MIA WWII Soldiers. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) aims to bring home the remains of unaccounted-for soldiers from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. I am honored to help in this effort.

DNA Cases

As time allows, I take cases utilizing DNA analysis. These involve unknown parents, grandparents and more. I have solved dozens of cases using autosomal and YDNA test results.
