About Goodwill Hunter

I am available for comprehensive genealogy/family tree research as well as specific work on "brick-wall" issues where you may have become stuck in your own research. I charge by the project not by the hour and you will know up front what costs will be involved. If I ever have to exceed an estimate due to extra-ordinary circumstances I will get your approval before proceeding. Feel free to contact me @ ttgeott@gmail.com. I will give you a phone contact # after our initial email exchange. I have been doing genealogy research since 1996 and have many instances of finding birth parents... building entire family trees from scratch and busting through those brick-walls that frustrate so many of us. I also locate and save any documents, photos etc that I discover in my research and send them to you via email attachments. The end product of my research is a private Family Tree built on Ancestry.com (that you can give family/friends access to) and a generated GEDCOM computer file I send you that can then be used with any off-the-shelf Genealogy/Family Tree software. I can also provide CD or DVD copies of the above items. Please feel free to contact me.. as they say "no job to big or small" that goes for families too... :) email me @ttgeott@gmail.com
