The Fabric of Ancestors

John F. Suter > Family History & Genealogy Research

You may have heard a question the last time you were with relatives.  You may have seen a recent television program about finding ancestors.  The curiosity may be there but you just don’t know where to start.  My experience in researching genealogy and history can save you some time.  Crossing history with our ancestor’s dates, we can enhance the background that gives you more than names from your ancestor’s lives.
From a known person you might want to discover a few generations.  Or, you may have collected some basic family information and don’t quite know the next steps.  Contact me with your questions.

I am available to provide services for you.  My experience is based in years of genealogical research as I continue searching my own Family lines, as well as other extended Families. This effort leads to the discovery of paths to follow the threads that make up the Fabric of our Ancestors.

Exploring this world of the Fabric of our Ancestors is rewarding but can be a very time consuming pursuit.  Details involved in the research are illustrated in the Genealogical Research Process chart presented on Genealogy Explained.  The Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) was created by the Board for Certification of Genealogists. It’s used to create sound, credible genealogical proof statements, and gives genealogists a standard to measure conclusions against.

Contact me to provide a research plan, guidance, or more extensive research and reporting.  With the Events of History adding to the Fabric, you can understand more than names and places from your ancestor’s lives.  Visit my services page for more details of what I can provide.
