We Find








We find your family's story

Your ancestors will 'live again' for your children

We build family trees from scratch, add new branches, or solve family history tracing problems.  We can turn your ancestry information into genealogical databases and stories with exciting, informative graphics.  We can send it your way - as transferrable GEDCOM files; as complete Mac Family Tree .mftpkg files, with a private or public website; or as emailed ancestor and descendant charts and reports.  It is simply suited to your request.

Every family has a tree.

Let us build yours!


'The past is not dead. It isn't even past.'

William Faulkner

I am a veteran journalist with 25 years of professional experience in research and writing. Tracking down family trees is my avocation and a passion.  After a lifetime of collecting family stories and more than a decade of turning them into compelling family trees, using the latest genealogy software, I have increasingly worked in this field.  Genealogy demands many of the same skills I still use in my lifelong journalistic profession.  I also found that I enjoy building others' trees as much as my own.  Thus, Myers Genealogy Services was 'born.' Certainly, I have spent more hours learning to perfect genealogy as I have in most college courses.

For family tree clients, I use top genealogy and governmental archival search sources, and also have developed an arsenal of alternative sources and a  network of genealogists to work through hard-to-solve tree branches.  I use many libraries, as needed, including the US National Archives and The Library of Congress in Washington D.C., as well as state archives.  Evidence and clues lead to "lost" family members, ties which I prove or disprove through documentation.

I am a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism, which is widely considered to be the best journalism school in the world.   In addition to 20 years of writing and researching newspaper stories, my other research experience includes editing and writing complex medical journal papers for physicians and scientists.

A fifth-generation native of Jasper County, Missouri, I have relatives and "found" ancestors from every corner of America and more than 30 foreign countries.  Let me link your family to your very own legacies.

I look forward to re-discovering your ancestors with an exciting, new family tree and free website!
