“Leslie, I really love and appreciate the family tree that you created for us. I tell people how much fun it is to do and how trustworthy you are. I’m amazed what I didn’t know. My wife and son have been engrossed in it and my grandkids are loving it.


“We are proud to find we are related to so many famous Colonial figures – and even humorous 'kinfolk,' like the feuding Hatfields & McCoys. Thank you!”


William Burlingame, Missouri

“When I found out that I had an aunt named Sophronia Paralee from 1848… it made my day! I do love her name.


"Learning that my family was from Nebraska, Oklahoma, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina was so much fun. Then, I found out that my father's side originally came from Switzerland, which is incredible. I am thrilled with Leslie Myers’ work.”



Susan Hayes, California

REGIONS:  I cover all US regions & foreign generations before immigration.

I have extensively studied numerous families for 400-year spans from before immigration to America. I have followed their wide westward swaths from the northeastern U.S. and Atlantic coastline, throughout the Midwest and South, then Westward to the Pacific. I have traced many family trees in almost every state in America, since Jamestown and before the West and South were settled, to modern times. I also have strong knowledge of the history of the Deep South. I have traced families through pre-colonial America and the 13 colonies and have documented trees as far back as the 1100s (12th century). I have traced their ancestors to more than 35 foreign countries.

Famous or notable relatives recently discovered in our trees include: multiple lines to ABRAHAM LINCOLN, separate lines to GEORGE and MARTHA WASHINGTON, and a third line to George's mother, MARY BALL. We also have traced trees to THOMAS JEFFERSON, other US Presidents, Native American POCAHONTAS, actor JOHN WAYNE (Marion Morrison), THE MAYFLOWER and other ship passengers, war nurse and Red Cross founder CLARA BARTON, poet/writer EDGAR ALLEN POE, frontiersman DANIEL BOONE, the HATFIELDS who feuded with the McCoys, 1st US slave to sue for freedom and win ELIZABETH KEY GRINSTEAD, America's 1st feminist MARGARET BRENT, US Constitution architect JAMES WILSON, Gov. LEONARD CALVERT, LORD(S) BALTIMORE, many Founding Fathers, many Governors and US Senators, US Capitol land donor WILLIAM OFFUTT, many Yankees and Rebels of the Civil War - including GEN. ROBERT E. LEE, numerous Revolutionary War soldiers and heroes, Irish revolutionary SEAN O'HARA, Lincoln nemesis JOHN "EX PARTE" MERRYMAN, LAURA HAWKINS (Mark Twain's "BECKY THATCHER"), DR. SAMUEL MUDD, innocent "witches" of Salem Village, entertainers, several knighted SIRs, an outlaw, etc.
