Southern Roots




what clients are saying about Southern Roots

"I would recommend Southern Roots Genealogical Services to ANYONE that is interested in searching family roots, and I would do so without any hesitation.  Tonya impressed me from the start when I received an immediate response to my inquiry.  I was worried that working via e-mail and being quite a distance apart would create some communication issues, but Tonya makes certain that she has a very clear understanding of the project. She is extremely knowledgable of information sources and very thorough in her search of those sources.  This includes those found in other states as well.  My project covered Missouri, Illinois and Mississippi.  All phases of her research are followed with a well-organized and detailed description of all of her findings, as well as recommendations for potential next steps based on her findings. Her work is completed in an extremely timely fashion and at a very reasonable rate. I am thrilled with the information she was able to find for me!  I had been searching for 2 years and there was no possible way that I would have known where to go to connect a grave site to my great-great-grandmother.  Tonya travelled to Aberdeen, Mississippi for me and introduced me to another family line.  I am so appreciative of her knowledge, time and efforts on the behalf of my family - present and past.

“Southern Roots Genealogical Services was exactly what we needed to find the information we were missing.  Tonya went above and beyond to fit the pieces together for our family.  After years of wondering, we now finally know and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”

"Southern Roots did an excellent job researching the complicated history of a property in South Carolina for me. [Tonya was] able to locate the names of all of the original owners and tenants that lived on the land prior to the Civil War and uncover beautiful photos and documents about the house. I will definitely use [Southern Roots] again!"

- C. W., Charleston, South Carolina


“I never knew anything about this side of the family. You’ve given me an

incredible gift!”

- J. C., Anniston, Alabama


"This is excellent research done at a budget and lightning fast. I am very impressed and I will not hesitate to use your services again or to sing your praises in the future! It is easy to find any number of genealogists online. The real question is if they can deliver detailed research quickly, and within budget. Southern Roots does all of those things...I can unreservedly recommend them." 

- M. E., Danville, California

"Tonya has pulled together land holdings of an ancestor and organized it in a way that is clear and easy to understand.  She is efficient, keeps in regular contact, and has been a joy to work with.  Her charges are very reasonable, especially given how much information she can accumulate in such a short period of time.  I recommend her without reservation to anyone seeking any aspect of their family history."

- C. F., Atlanta, Georgia
