“… in all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage—to know who we are and where we have come from.”  – Alex Haley

Have you wondered about where your family came from? Have you thought about who your ancestors were? Have you heard stories about your family and wondered if they were true?

Discovering the answers isn’t always simple. Knowing where to search is essential. LCD Genealogy Services understands which resources may help to answer those questions and provides genealogical research services to help you find and understand your family history.

We all have a rich family history, but may not be aware of the stories of our ancestors. There is immense value in understanding where our families have come from, and what they have lived through (socially, culturally, historically) — this is meaningful for our own sense of identity and knowing our place in history, and can be passed down to our children in this every changing and connected world.
