“Alicia did a fantastic job gathering genealogical evidence for me. I had already assembled a record of names in my area of interest, but Alicia was able to find details that were new to me (which is difficult to do!), and she traced family history farther than I had thought possible. She is on task, efficient, and well versed in all things genealogy! Whether you are just starting your search, or have already identified notable people, Alicia can enhance your information and guide you in your genealogy travels. Also, I was so happy that she sent me documents (including photos!) of some of the people I was interested in learning about- it’s such a humbling thing to have access to documents from the past, and I appreciate her thoroughness. In short, Alicia is excellent at her craft, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.”
