I commissioned Jillian to find a photo of “J.F. Hudson”, former Captain of the Royal Dublin Golf Club. We had a blank space in the Club Photo gallery of Past Captains for him. As John Fenton Hudson never married and had no direct descendants Jillian first had to trace back to his parents to find his siblings and then trace forwards and found his Grandnieces. She impressed with her skills and commitment leaving no stone unturned to succeed in this challenge. His Photo is now included after many years!

My husband wanted to explore his Irish roots in hopes of obtaining dual citizenship.  Living just outside Chicago, it was difficult for us to do the research ourselves. While we learned he did not qualify, Jillian and were able to solve quite a few long standing mysteries about his family.  They worked tirelessly until they got answers and presented us with a thorough report on their comprehensive efforts. The service was excellent.  Jillian was a pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend them.
