ProGenealogists will assist you with every step of publishing your family history. We will walk with you through the process of conception all the way to completion. ProGenealogists's skilled employees can complete all stages of the process, including: research, writing, editing, layout, production, and even distribution. You can read more about our family history publishing options following the link above.
We also create and produce audio and textual oral histories. Our interviewer will travel to your home, or the home of a loved, one and spend 4 to 8 hours over the course of a few days, conducting the interviews. With high-quality digital equipment, the interviewer will use his or her skills to draw out important stories and help capture the life of the interviewer on audio DVD. This type of personal history is a wonderful addition to, or could be the primary base for, a wonderful family history to enjoy for decades.
Our skilled team of research specialists in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Poland, Germany and other places abroad can assist you with missing heirs and probate research.

Need just one record, or two? ProGenealogists is committed to providing the highest levels of service to its clientele. At this time, and for the first time since our beginnings in 1998, we're temporarily pausing our single item record search service. In the meantime, we'd like to suggest that you investigate several options for getting the record search help you need: our colleagues at the Association of Professional Genealogists, ICAPGEN (Accredited Genealogists), BCG (Certified Genealogists), RAOGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness), Genlighten, or Genealogyfreelancers.com. If you have the exact Family History Library call number, book, and page number, you can contact the Family History Library directly.
If you have more extensive record search and research needs and you find that the above options do not suit your needs, you might consider hiring us on an hourly basis to conduct research for you (our rates vary from $48-$90 an hour depending on the nature of the request).
