    - Marquette, Michigan

  • Testimonial

    Thank you for the wonderful, wonderful, wonderful book you put together…I was really choked up to look at it and what a wonderful job you did. There’s so much more in there that I would have ever found by myself.

  • Testimonial

    Thanks to Laura for her amazing work. My father has never been able to track his family back to Europe. Thanks to Rooting Out Relations, I have a beautiful gift for him that shows his family to be from England and some of the first settlers. It is priceless. Thank you!!
