Most of the research is done in YourFolks.com covered territory (Quebec and parts of Ontario, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Alberta). We will also look for ancestors in the rest of North America, and we will perform limited searches in Western Europe. For their research, our experts have also access to data beside those available on YourFolks.com.
Information Not Included
Only the subject’s ancestors are included. The work will not include: the subject’s children, his marriage, his brothers and sisters or those of his ancestors.
However, a short paragraph (400 characters max.) is available to describe the subject. This paragraph is often used to put information on the subject immediate family: his marriage, his children and grandchildren. This paragraph is put at the top of the printed poster.
First Ancestor and Family Name Origins
You may ask YourFolks.com to prepare (optional) a short text on your first ancestor in North America and your family name origins. For a paternal line and a family tree, this will be the subject’s father’s 1st ancestor and name. For a maternal line, this will be the subject’s mother’s first ancestor and name.
Aboriginal Origins – Indian Status
For all Indian status queries, follow up with the appropriate authorities. The only information provided in a genealogy performed by YourFolks.com that can give a hint on the Indians origins of a person are the place of marriage of an ancestor and his name.
