"As an adopted person, I hit complete dead ends when searching for birth family. I had a DNA test done, but I found the results were really confusing.The team at Genealogy Investigations have excellent investigative skills, tenacity and lateral thinking - I'd absolutely recommend turning to professional investigators for help in your search." Di Taylor - adoptee.
We can simplify complicated DNA results and potentially make those important family connections for you.
Having your DNA tested is now relatively simple and cheap. DNA test results can be invaluable in helping to identify and find lost family members or put together an accurate family tree. BUT, understanding your results and putting them to use is not so simple. We have heard from many people who have sent off a DNA sample with high hopes of identifying an unknown parent or grandparent only to be confused and frustrated when the results came back. Most companies will provide you with 'best guesses' at a relationship with someone identified as a DNA match. But these 'best guesses' may be imprecise and confusing for many.
We can help. By working together we can identify and research DNA matches in your test results which may be the key to unlocking that family puzzle. You will need to give us access to your results, but rest assured, these will remain completely confidential.
We will conduct three hours of dedicated research and provide you with a report showing your relationship to important DNA matches within the context of a family tree, indicating other family members and potentially identifying that missing piece to your puzzle. The cost of this report is $225 (GST exclusive). If you want us to conduct further research after this, the cost will be $75 per hour (GST exclusive). In the unlikely event that we incur any costs in compiling this report (for example needing to purchase a birth, marriage or death certificate) this will be charged to you at the cost price - we won't do anything that will cost you more without contacting you and getting your agreement.
If we cannot immediately identify the person or family you are seeking, don't worry, if you want us to, we can keep your results in our active folder (at no cost) and check back periodically to see if new DNA matches are added to your results.
