Benefit From Our Experience
When you engage our researchers, you benefit from the scholarship, experience and professional relationships we have built over 170 years of continuous family history research.

We Research Around the World (Not Just New England)
Whether your ancestors came over on the Mayflower or from Mongolia, we know how to find them. While we have deep expertise in New England, our team conducts research nationwide and in many countries across the world, and in several languages, including French, Latin, German, Italian, Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese.
We leverage our network of contacts in archives, libraries, historical societies, and other document repositories to find the records we need to connect the people in your family tree.
Our researchers provide much of the genealogical research behind the popular television show Finding Your Roots, which is filmed on location at our Newbury Street building.
Our team has also researched extensive family histories for celebrities and notable persons, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cindy Crawford, Ken Burns, Cokie Roberts, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Princess Michael of Kent and many others.
