Genealogist & Family History Services

Hello there, I’m Jill Moore.  Please let me take this chance to welcome you to the Serendipity Tree where I offer my genealogical services for hire and write about my ancestors.

Genealogy has given my life richness and depth by answering questions I’d long pondered about who I was and where I came from.  My interests, talents, quirks and characteristics… I have found so much of my ancestors still reside within me.  There is so much to be discovered from the legacy they’ve left behind.  From their stories of overcoming hardships and distress, I know that if they persevered, I can too.  When I’m stuck with writer’s block, I find my uncle’s poems from the early 1900’s a source of inspiration.  I want to give my clients this same meaningful, joyful experience that I’ve had discovering my own family’s roots.

So whether you want to trace your family tree, leave a written personal history for your family, find your birth parents or need professional genealogical services such as locating missing heirs through due diligence search, I will put my years of knowledge and experience to work for you.

“I find the family the most mysterious and fascinating institution in the world.” – Amos Oz
