Our Genealogists

Client Testimonial

DNA Huntress is a group of professional genealogists who took their passion for family history to the next level. As graduates of Boston University's (BU) 15-week intensive Genealogical Research certificate program,  we are prepared to help others with their family research needs. We know research techniques, how to follow the standards, document, and report the results to you. Some of us have also had additional education, for example, in DNA analysis. 

Besides using the popular genealogy websites, we know of hundreds of other sites with valuable information, including some subscription sites you may not have access to. 

Not local to where your ancestors lived? We may have someone who can go there for you to obtain needed information, no matter where in the world it might be.

From Pamlyn Millsap:

"Teresa Haviland [of DNA Huntress] has helped me figure out my heritage and past. I was placed for adoption at birth and she is in the process of trying to figure out who my birth father is. Sometimes I am open and up front about my search, other times it is embarrassing for me to admit that I really want to know who and where I came from. If you are searching for family members and need help, contact DNA Huntress. Their researchers can help you through the maze."
