Ancestor Hound Research is a mid-Michigan based genealogy research, teaching and writing business. Areas of research specialization include upper-Midwestern states such as Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, and Ontario, Canada. The Library of Michigan, with one of the largest genealogical collections east of the Mississippi, is located very nearby, as is the Archives of Michigan with its vast collection of official state documents.
Ancestor Hound Research is also available for lectures and classes, including “Getting Started Researching Your Family History,” “Locating Your First Records on Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org,” and “Exploring Your Michigan Roots.”
In addition, making family history interesting to the non-genealogists in the family is a priority. This can be accomplished through identifying, dating and preserving family photographs, recording oral family history through writing, audio and video, and finally combining all the parts to create engaging family history presentations in both print and multimedia formats.
Ancestor Hound Research can assist in all stages of the genealogy process, from the initial research, to collecting and identifying family photographs, to fleshing out names and dates with appropriate historical details that will make your family story come to life.
