I have been a family history researcher for over 30 years ever since my father left me his notes on his family.Â Â Â Since then I have worked with a number of other researchers who have helped me find good sources as I am a stickler for documentary proof of facts.
I consider myself very fortunate to have come in contact with Lisa Lisson.Â Â She is diligent and clever about finding those small bits of data that connect people in obscure past records.Â Â Beyond that, Lisa is a joy to work with, adaptable, insightful and flexible.Â Â She takes a suggestion and works it into a plan of action adapted to my schedule and budget.Â Â Above all she is honest about what is possible and prudent in terms of cost and results.Â Â Â I have come to consider her a partner in my work.Â Â – Jim S.
After both my parents died, I thought my links to my family history were lost forever. I turned to a genealogy website to try to track down information about my heritage, and found evidence that I qualified to be a Daughter of the American Revolution. Knowing that the official paperwork would require documentation of my ancestors, I turned to Lisa Lisson (no relation) for assistance. She helped track down the links between my Patriot ancestor and me, and helped me to submit my documents to become a Daughter of the American Revolution. Lisa also sent me wonderful detail-filled reports on different members of my family. I have built quite a collection of reprints of family history books based on the sources she found. Lisa’s reports and my book collection will be a resource for my young nephews when they get older and begin asking about where they came from. I can share stories of Puritans and farmers and witchcraft and Irish butchers and Indian raids and pioneers! Â Â Â Â – Kathleen L.
