Genealogy Research Services
Single Person Search

For $80.00, which includes the cost of copies and mailing, we do a search for information on a single surname. You should provide as much information about your ancestor in order that we may isolate the correct line of descent to you. Birth, marriage and death dates are important as is the township in which they lived. Unfortunately, the State of PA did not require registering BMD dates until 1885, however, due to a fire in 1893, the birth and death records were lost and begin mid-1893 in Bedford Co.

Click on the appropriate alphabet range below to see some of the names in our reasearch files. These indexes will be updated as we compile more names and are by no means complete indexes. Please call or email us for more information or questions.
