“Nicola successfully re-united me and my birth family. We'd been looking unsuccessfully ourselves for over 50 years - but she solved the whole mystery in days. We are all absolutely thrilled and would recommend Nicola's DNA detective work to everyone who is desperately searching for a missing or unknown relative."
Sasha Jacobs, London.
“I started to research my family tree on my own but quickly got overwhelmed. Nicola offered her expert help and quickly found multiple new ancestors across the generations. Her writing style is fabulous; you can tell she’s a professional. Highly recommended.
