"I contacted Archives Alive in 2015 through a referral. In my fourth decade of genealogical research, I knew it was time to find a research partner with complementary skills and targeted knowledge to help me break through long-standing brick walls that have stood for hundreds of years.

I'm thrilled to report those walls have come "a tumbling down." Nicola's deep knowledge of English archives and sources identified records mostly unknown and untapped by generations of experienced American genealogists.

If you are a serious genealogical researcher and realize everything is not available online, then you cannot do better than Archives Alive. They have my highest recommendation. But you'll need to stand in line behind me, because I'm not yet finished!"
