Donna has become an integral link in the chain of events that shed light upon my search for details of my personal early childhood history. She demonstrated integrity, responsibility, forthrightness and timeliness. In addition, acting as a liaison in connecting family history of the present with the past, she was compassionate, invested and earnest in her desire to gather any and all pertinent research. Donna’s interest, expertise and support set me forth on the first step towards truth by providing me with accurate family information, and I am forever grateful. I wholeheartedly recommend Tree Shakers in meeting your research needs in a professional, yet highly personalized manner.

I wanted to search for my family history on both sides of my family, so I went to Finding myself at dead-ends fairly quickly, I contacted Donna for help. She knew how to “dig” up more information than I could find on my own. Within hours she had found several generations back to my immigrant ancestors from England and even had pictures of the boat he came to America on! She was able to find images of my paternal grandparents’ marriage certificate and census records showing who lived with my great-grandparents. I got a mental picture of how my family had lived.

I hired Tree Shakers Research in 2017 as a present for my husband’s 75th birthday. They did an incredible job and it was his favorite gift! Donna found the exact time our name changed in spelling along with some other fascinating historical facts. I am very grateful for all her hard work and will use Tree Shakers again in the future. My son can’t wait to get his copy of the package!

My father grew up never knowing about his mother’s family so I decided to hire Donna to help shed a light on his history. She found seven of my grandmother’s siblings and was able to locate almost all the descendants that are living today. My dad is forever grateful, as he now has a list of relatives he can contact to ask about more family information. Donna was so professional and understanding — we intend to hire her again to help with my mother’s side as well.

I hired Tree Shakers Research when I wanted to find my birth father but had no information regarding him. Donna went to work and had viable options in less than 2 days. We had a 100% connection within a week. It has been so good to connect with that side of my family and form relationships with a father and brothers I never knew I had.
