I'm writing a book!

But that means I'm not accepting new research projects at this time. You can learn about our genealogy education options at The Occasional Genealogist Academy.

Need a hand deciphering your family history?

We've got what you need

Every genealogist has a unique problem, budget, and skills. We offer three levels of service to meet your unique combination.

DIY Options

For the most avid hobbyist genealogist, we offer do-it-yourself help through our sister blog, The Occasional Genealogist. You can find online courses in The Occasional Genealogist Academy.

Done-with-you Options

If you want to save the fun of discovery for yourself, or you're looking for a more budget-friendly option, we offer a done-with-you service that combines online instruction with a 1:1 review.

Done-for-you Options

The traditional genealogy service is done-for-you research. You'll start with our signature on-boarding to gather the information you already have and then we'll handle the rest. 

For Genealogists, by Genealogists

At Southern Cipher DNA & Genealogy we understand genealogists. For over 14 years we've focused on providing the best options for hobbyist genealogists that need a bit of professional help. We know how much you love making your own discoveries because we're genealogists, too.

Just because you love genealogy doesn't mean you always have the skills your problem needs, right now. Or maybe you don't have the time for the research or hunting down someone who can access the records you need. We get it. Our options are designed for people who'd like to do their own research but for whatever reason, need help.
