How Can I Help?

Alana Morgan
Owner, KinQuery

With almost 30 years of research experience, let me help you build the story of your family.

Focus Areas:

  • Irish Migration to North America;
  • Irish Ancestral Research
  • French-Canadian Ancestral Research
  • Scottish Ancestral Research

At KinQuery we believe that the history of your family is more than just names and dates. Let me help you build your story.

Coaching

If you are ready to start working on your genealogy, but not quite sure where to start, I can help! Through virtual meetings we will:

  • Establish your research goals
  • Create a research plan
  • Discuss tips on keeping it all organised

Individual Research

I will research a single individual, as selected by you, and provide:

  • Genealogical reports (Descendant Charts, Ancestor Reports, Family Tree Charts), as applicable
  • Overview of the timeline of that individual
  • Copies of original records and source information
  • Biographical sketch of that individual following the format of the Australian Dictionary of Biography. For an example, please visit http://adb.anu.adu.au

Parental or Maternal Research

Starting with your father or mother, I will work back following that line so far as records allow and per your established goal. At the conclusion of the research you will receive:

  • Genealogical reports (Descendant Charts, Ancestor Reports, Family Tree Charts)
  • Overview of the timeline of the Paternal Line
  • Copies of original records and source information

Full Family Research

Working backwards from both of your parents, I will establish your ancestral lines so far as records allow and per your established goal. At the conclusion of the research you will receive:

  • Genealogical Reports (Descendant Charts, Ancestor reports, Family Tree Charts)
  • Overview of the family timeline
  • Copies of original records and source information

Translation and Transcription

  • Translation of original documents from French to English/English to French
  • Translation of original documents from Spanish to English/English to Spanish
  • Transcription of audio recordings
