You got so much more than I was expecting … I have to say, this was my first venture into using a researcher, and I’m so glad I did – worth every penny
J.S (UK) October 2018 for finding out what happened to a poor family in a Dumfriesshire parish in the 1840s

I am blown away with the amount of detail you have uncovered; thank you so very much

D.A (UK) March 2018 for locating properties owned by a family of ministers from the early 17th century onwards and solving the mystery of the wife of one of their descendants who emigrated to Georgia in the early 1800s

I‘ve really admired your professionalism and am thrilled with the many discoveries you have made over the last four years or so.
H.S (UK) September 2017 for searching a wide variety of unindexed material, such as Deeds and Processes, of several of the Sheriff and Commissary Courts

N.L (UK) September 2017 from the Preface to his Bruntsfield Links; Home of Club Golf

Thanks again for all the hard work on my behalf. Even though it did not yield the results I had hoped for, I am thrilled to have gotten to know these ancestors in a more personal way. I could not have done it without your help
B.K (USA) August 2016 for finding additional information about the parents and grandparents of Sir William Purves (1623-1684), HM Solicitor in Scotland which helped to correct errors on an internet site about his origins

M.S (USA) July 2016 for locating a court case which took place in Scotland and which was referred to in a legal notice printed in an American newspaper in July 1826

You have done a tremendous amount of work and I greatly appreciate the summary in English. I find it difficult to read the various hands of the original script to say nothing of translating those that are in Latin. Your commentary gives a clear account of what happened in the 17th century confirming some of the information I had and filling gaps
