Genealogical Services

I have over 35 years experience in genealogical research.  I specialize in the following regions: US, England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Mexico.  Other areas of specialization include assisting adoptees locating birth parents, and holocaust family research.

I am the genealogist for Clan Buchanan Society International (CBSI) and  I give discounted rates to members of CBSI members.  I provide clients with a detailed report of all search results.  Contact me at for hourly rate quotes and further details.

Due to some issues in my life, I am currently not accepting new clients.

    Hi Patty,

    I am looking for a possible probate record in Santa Clara County in Oct 1954. I need the formal administration or will showing the heir’s relationship to the decedent. Is this something you could help me with? If so, would you advise your fee and time to complete?

    Kind regards,
    Amy Lay

    I was wondering if you would know of records or information for a Buchanan family that moved to Pennsylvania, Bradford county around 1800? The first to move to the northern Pennsylvania area was George Buchanan.

    Thank you,

    Andrea Renshaw

    Hi Patty
    I have traced my Hopkinson ancestry back to Matthew Hopkinson (my 7x great grandfather) who married Mary Palin in Chesterfield in 1715 and they lived in Temple Normanton, Derbyshire. He died in 1740.
    Is he on your tree?
    I have got my father to take Ancestry and Living DNA tests which I would be happy to share with you.
