We donated a five-hour block of family history research to the Dangberg Ranch to be sold at their silent auction.  It was bought and this historic park gained all the proceeds from this.  In appreciation, they gave us a shout-out on Facebook.

“Oh my gosh!  Oh my gosh!  Lisa this is so great.  What a job.  I admire your perseverance.  Quite a lot of detail and work.  I didn’t realize there were such records of the family.  Again, thank you so much for all your hard and perfect work.



6 Jan 17

“Thank you so infinitely for your incredible help.  I am still having a hard time believing this is actually happening, and I want to express my immense gratitude as well as my family’s.  I would never have been able to do this without you, not only because of your great investigator skills, but also because you provided me with a precious emotional support these past few days.   Thank you.

“My very dear Lisa,

“I know words can never tell you how touched and thrilled I am with my album – the care and time taken boggles my mind, and makes my heart happy and so grateful – you are so special to me.



17 Dec 16

“Lisa, Hi,

“Firstly, I must say a huge heartfelt thank you.  What you’re unfolding in such a snowballing, avalanching record amount of time is fascinating!  Wow!  So I have an Aunt?  I’m keen to get to know people.  Absolutely!  And any more information would be great.  It’s fascinating and I see some familiar faces amongst the old photos which is just amazing.  Merry Christmas and take care.



10 Dec 16

“The book got here today.  It is fabulous!  I can’t wait to give it to G for Christmas.  Thanks!

“I wanted to tell you that I love the binder with my family details!  It’s the coolest thing!  Thank you so very much for working on that and putting it together.  My whole family pours over it.  It’s such a neat thing.  Thank you! Thank you!  It is so interesting!

“If you are interested in knowing where you came from on this planet – find long lost family members and cousins that you never knew you “have”….you have to contact Lisa Hamilton — She is a Super Sleuth Genius Genealogist.

“She did my parents history and came up with a ton of information along with photos that they would never have had if not for her…and long lost relatives too…  ***Lisa also found my friend Ira’s birth family!!!  If not for Lisa he never would have found them!!!  Trust me, you will love her!!!

“I can’t thank you enough.  What a joy this is.  LS”


23 Apr 16

“Thank you so much for your help.  Your research give me a good feeling and I think the next thing to do is contact her.  Again, thanks for your kindness and generosity 🙂 — I will definitely pay it forward to someone else!




27 Jan 16

“D really liked the info you sent him on his ancestors – that is so cool and such an interesting history.  His grandmother used to tell us about Freidlander and that family line, but he doesn’t know much at all about the M line, other then his grandfather being a dentist from Texas. He’s really interested in knowing more – this is so great, Lisa. Thanks again for your skillful detective work.



22 Jan 16

“Received the notebook. Thank you very much. The footnotes are so interesting. You did amazing research.

S & R”


21 Jan 16

“We continue to be amazed and surprised by the information we’re getting about our respective family histories.  Our friend Lisa Hamilton is helping us make sense of the available information and does some real detective work.  From my DNA I know that 63% of me came from Africa and 36% from Europe.  There are lots of specifics that are being discovered and it boggles the mind.

Peace, Danny”


26 Dec 15

“OMGosh!!! Good job!!!



25 Dec 15

“You’re awesome.  I hope that you are having an amazing day Lisa.

“Many thanks for this great information. You’ve really inspired some major detective work going on in our family

Recently I inquired about running an ad in the Horse Tales newspaper and ended up doing some research for the editor.  I wrote an article that she put in her Feb/Mar issue and she wrote the following testimonial at the end.

“A few months back Lisa sent in her ad about her Genealogy service and in our discussion I told her that I had been looking for my biological father and any siblings I may have that I did not know. After giving her some information, she called back the same day and had located a half sister in Australia.  I have been in communication with my sister due to Lisa’s talent and ability.  Thank you Lisa for making this possible.”



11 Feb 15

“Having loads of fun talking to my new cousin.  Still king of flabbergasted.  Am looking at all those fun documents and pictures, trying to get it to sink in.  Thank you again for such good work!  It happened all so fast.



24 Nov 14

“Thank you so much for the work you are doing to find some of my family.



20 Nov 14

“Hi Lisa, My roommate wanted me to tell you how excited she was to get the 3 documents about her ancestors.  She was really thrilled and couldn’t wait for me to print them out.  She is so grateful for this work you are doing.  Thanks again.

REVIEW ON A DEBUG SERVICE: This family had gotten a book of the family history passed down to them from their grandfather 100 years ago. They could not get their family tree to connect with where the lineage in the book ended off and needed help on this one line in their family tree. We successfully found the family line that connected up to the book, gave them the tree with all the details and a CD containing all the records to prove this lineage.  Their reaction:

“This is excellent! I am VERY happy! This is more than I had hoped for. I have other lines in my tree that I need help with and will hire you again. I will definitely recommend you to others. Again, thank you so much. I am delighted and my ancestors thank you too!




29 Aug 2014


You are awesome! This made my weekend. Hope you have a great holiday.



16 Aug 2014

“I got the ancestry book.  My husband told me it arrived but I didn’t let him open it!  We are both thrilled!  My Dad is going to be elated and I know once he starts studying what you have done, he will want more.  I think it’s perfect.  I am sure my mom will be jealous and she will email you shortly. 🙂

YOU ARE WONDERFUL and so talented.  This is perfect!

“I would like to thank Lisa Hamilton for the fabulous, professional and fast work she has done on my family tree.  I have been reunited with two cousins I haven’t talked with since I was a young boy, learned about the background, life and times of my maternal grandmother and even have a picture of a previously unknown cousin in Northern Ireland.  Details about my father’s side of the family have been found and more coming!

It is such a pleasure to learn about all of this and that’s only the beginning.  Thanks Lisa!!!



22 May 2014

“Thank you Lisa for the amazing job you did on my family history…wow you are amazing!!

I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have all my family history with the wonderful stories and pictures in one place.  I didn’t know all of this existed!!!  You are truly gifted at doing such in depth research.

I hope others will take advantage of Personal Pedigree Genealogy…Great Job!!!

Gail S.”

“My wife Angie and I thank you for all the hard work you put into “digging up” our family trees.  We are certainly pleased with all the interesting family history information you found.

I think you did a fantastic job and we both recommend Personal Pedigree highly.  I will be sending more people your way and will be using your family history research for unique gifts in the future.

Best of luck,

Jason Beghe”

That is definitely your calling…….

Can’t thank you enough.

“I loved the book Lisa, it took me completely by surprise.  I will have a million questions, but I’ll let you recover from the holidays first.  My mother had a sister who died years ago.  She had a daughter who we lost contact with at least 50 years ago. It would be fun to try and locate here someday.

Thanks again and we will be talking to you…”

“I’m so impressed that you know how to find these articles and grateful for the information, Lisa.  Thank you.”



1 Sept 2013

“I am so impressed Lisa, with all that you were able to come up with and in such a relatively short period of time.  I have been “spinning my wheels” for weeks on these names and was feeling more than a little frustrated – so my appreciation runs deeper than I can say.  Thanks so much for the time and effort you so graciously and willingly put into this.”



31 Aug 2013

“Wow.  I haven’t looked at the documents yet, but you’ve certainly done some impressive digging.”



30 Aug 2013

“Oh my gosh.  I am simply speechless and unbelievably grateful.  I cannot believe how much you were able to research and obtain.  I cannot thank you enough.  You have helped me so much in my search.”


11 Aug 2013

“Thank you so much Lisa.  You are a master.  You are correct –  my mother’s family name was Denny.  Her father’s last name was Huff. Amazing.  I am so excited.  Thanks in advance.”



18 Jan 2013

“[After being alive for 57 years and never knowing who my real family is], it’s pretty cool finding out I have a big brother.  I think we look a little alike too.  I have so many questions I don’t know where to begin.”



19 Dec 2012

“The books arrived and they are fantastic, exceeding my expectations and then some.  The organization and clarity of information and pictures make the books an absolute treasure.  I am very excited to give the books to the kids on Christmas.  Thank you so much for your interest and exceptional work regarding our ancestry.”

Stokes, Dorothy Alice


I will send an answer to all your questions in just a bit. I am crying right now because, I have never seen a picture of my grandmother, Dorothy. I’m overwhelmed with emotion. My mom looks just like her. Thanks so much!”



24 Aug 2011

“Hi Lisa, Thank you for helping to track down my Dad.  I don’t want any personal contact with his family or relatives, or any further research done now, but it’s good to know what happened.  You do great research.  I thought it was neat all the info you were able to find for J, I know it means a lot to him.

Thanks again.  If I ever want to dig any deeper, I will be sure to ask your help.




21 June 2011

“Hello Lisa,
Thank you for your prompt reply.
I’m so happy to think that maybe I can reunite with N and MJ.

… Thank you again Lisa.  Mary”

Thanks, the ‘tidbit’ is amazing.  You really seem to know where to look.  I think we can say with certainty that John’s father was Claud.”

“Your email prompted me to look again and have discovered another sister born 1866 in Blythswood, Glasgow and a brother Edward Malcolm born 1863 in Dumbarton. I imagine that they went to the East Indies with them, so it seems that you were right and your friend is my cousin once removed.

All the best, hope to hear from you soon.”
