"I wanted to write and say this is all very exciting for me. I've waited so many years and now to have all this information is fascinating. I am sincerely grateful to you all. You have no idea what you have opened up to me. I am thrilled! I'm truly blessed and thank you with all my heart. This could not have been easy, since I sent you very little information. You've given me more information than I ever expected."
-A. Caldwell, S.C.

"My experience with Legacy Tree was excellent. The genealogist was very helpful in getting my questions answered. I chose Legacy Tree because of their wide range of experience and they were reasonably priced as well. I will use Legacy Tree again in the future as they have the resources to find answers and are genuinely happy to do the investigations."
