Forensic Services

For Legal Professionals and Administrators/Executors:

We understand the time sensitive nature of probate cases. Put our expertise to work for you.In Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania, Mineral Rights is an issue with the Marcellous and Utica Shale projects. Per the State Laws and Revised Codes, you’ll need to do the research and find how who actually owns those rights. Our staff is ready to do the research for you and compile reports. Let your case be handled by experienced people who can also find those rights owners.

County Government and Land Owners:
Per Ohio law, before a cemetery can be moved or disturbed, the living descendants must be notified. Let our specialized knowledge of cemeteries, research, locating descendants, and local history make sure you find all of the graves marked and unmarked alike. How do you know who is really their descendant or next of kin is if they had no children? We’ll then contact each of the descendants or next of kin as we determine relationships. Let our experience aide you in quickly working through your projects.

Records Retrieval

There are millions of records in the States of Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania and almost none of them are available online!

There are many over looked very important repositories of information and none of them may ever be available online due to budget constraints. Let our knowledge of archives, personal collections, libraries, law, and local history serve your needs.

Whether you’re brand new to the field of genealogy or a seasoned researcher, documentation is everything! Getting those records are important because they build a paper trail and can establish a time line.

Records are anything on paper, established primarily by a third party for verification of an event. Deeds, obituaries, memberships, birth records, and death records are just a sample of the kind of records that can be retrieved.

This service is primarily for the people who do not need any genealogical research done, but they do need the documentation they are looking for to prove or disprove relationships, establish timelines, or to join a pioneer/early settler club.

The types of records that can be retrieved are obituaries (subject to availability), deeds and related land titles, vital statistics (subject to availability, not available in all States), and other records that are more geographic related.
