Do you do research on individuals to help determine family lineage? In this case, to help me trace back a few generations beyond my grandfather’s father and grandfather in Hummel Hemsted, England (near London)? The family owned and operated a book store and stationer shop (one and the same business), before immigrating to Ottawa, Canada in the later 19th Century.

Confirmation is needed about the links to Thomas Rolph (18th century). Later, when this is done, the intention is go back a few hundred years, if possible.

Do you have specialists in English-Irish-Scottish genealogy, familiar with the county and immigration records of the UK and the USA?
If yes, I would provide you with information I have that would speed things along, e.g., dates and places of birth.

This research would be original in nature as well as confirmation of what has already been documented. The challenge here is minor multiple and overlapping individual family documents that raise more questions than answered. Best example from this point is about the English brothers of great, great-great, and great-great-great grandfathers who are not linked sufficiently, so it is hard to connect the dots accounting for migratory and immigration patterns of family movements.

The starting place would be my grandfather, who immigrated from Ottawa to Seattle and San Francisco in 1906+. It is his father and grandfather and great-grandfathers that need to be verified in name etc.

Your reply shall be appreciated. Thank you.
