Testimonials

“Jane is not only an excellent historian, thorough researcher and knowledgeable professional, but she is also blessed with the ability to see beyond dates and places in a way that makes the past relatable and immediate. “The ancestors want their stories to be told,” she said early in our journey, and I came to realize how right she was. It was a pleasure to have her as expert and guide to link the past with the present and the present to the past. I highly recommend her.

“After being at a dead end for several years in my Myers family research, I reached out to Jane Wilcox of Forget-Me-Not Ancestry for assistance. Jane immediately evaluated the evidence I had assembled and began providing expert insight into interpreting the assembled history along with suggestions for next steps. Her experience as a genealogist has proven invaluable, as she has leveraged multiple original sources to help me document my family back to the early 1800s in Albany, New York and Germany. I especially appreciated Jane’s dedication in traveling frequently to obtain records and photos, her frequent communication via phone calls, email, and U.S. mail. I highly recommend Jane and Forget-Me-Not Ancestry for help with your family history research.”

“I was very pleased with the genealogical services I received from Jane E. Wilcox. She thoroughly explained her services in the contract she provided at the beginning of the research project, kept me informed periodically of the progress she was making, and always consulted me before proceeding with acquiring documents. The complet ed research was sent to me in a timely fashion and very well organized, and includes copies of many primary source documents.

“Jane has done an outstanding job of researching my family. Her attention to detail was evident in all the documents she provided to support her findings. It would have taken me years to find the information that Jane was able to find about my family in only a few months. I would highly recommend hiring Jane to research your family. You will be very satisfied with the results.”

~ Jaclyn Anaya, Ohio

“I could not be happier with Jane’s work. She is tenacious, always with an upbeat, creative, positive spirit and never fears to go where the documents, evidence and data may lead. She communicates strategy, suggestions and direction in a timely and collaborative fashion so that I always know where she is in the search and always feel my input is valued. Having worked in Human Resources for over 40 years, with responsibility for reviewing the performance of hundreds of employees over the years, I can give Ms. Wilcox my highest recommendation.”

~ Jim Sturdevan, Tennessee

“Jane promised results and delivered them seamlessly. I had been unsuccessfully searching for my grandfather for 25 years. I tried all of the data searches. I scanned the web. I didn’t find him. I needed help, and Jane jumped in and professionally searched her sources. Within a few days she actually located him — his death certificate, and ended this chapter of my work. It was fantastic! It was fast! It was accurate. I strongly recommend Jane’s work to anyone that has hit a roadblock in their research. You won’t be sorry.”

~ Jim Finkle, Virginia

“I had dealt with another genealogist before finding Jane – a wasted $500. What he gave me was a regurgitation of the information I’d provided him. When I contacted Jane, she laid out a working relationship with no ambiguities and she kept her commitment. Jane has earned my trust.”

~ Gail West, Free Lance Journalist, Alaska

“In my quest to become a member of the DAR, the family research I was doing hit the proverbial “brick wall”.  It was frustrating and very time consuming for me to continue. I contacted Jane E. Wilcox who promptly responded to my request for help.  She kept me informed of her progress throughout her research. I received the documentation I needed in a timely manner, and she told me how to present my information to the DAR for review.  Because of her work and the information she uncovered, I was able to submit my completed application to the DAR and have it accepted.  I am proud to be a member of the DAR – Thank you,  Jane!”

~ Judi Mobilio, Connecticut

“Jane assembled an analysis report with next steps for my research. After reading her analysis, I was very excited about the research suggestions. I had never thought of many of the things that were suggested, and it looks like I have a new twist in my research with the addition of Kentucky!”

~ Karen Gaffney, California

“Jane Wilcox is a thorough researcher with good ideas on how to crack the mysteries of ancestry/genealogy. She was very helpful to me in researching one branch of my family, and I plan to use her services when I continue my family’s genealogy project.”

~ Courtenay Auger, Maine

“I was impressed by Ms. Wilcox’s inventiveness and knowledge in suggesting research routes to use in exploring an obscure genealogical question.  She was conscientious in establishing what I had already done with respect to the problem and what sources I had already had used, and her suggestions showed an acquaintance with sources, many of them unpublished, that was most impressive.  She was very pleasant to deal with, and very prompt and clear in reporting results of her research.  I would certainly recommend Ms. Wilcox to anyone needing expert help with a thorny genealogical problem.”

~ Robert Emery, New York

“Jane gave a talk called ‘Up the North River: An Overview of Pre-1800 Ethnic Groups and Religions in the Hudson Valley.’ The audience was captivated by the presentation on who preceded us to the Hudson Valley, the variety of religions that held sway here, and the number of nations that were represented far earlier than any of us thought. Jane kept the informative talk lively and patiently answered many, many questions. Programs like this keep people coming back for more history. Thank you, Jane.”

~ Vivian Yess Wadlin, Town of Lloyd Historical Preservation Society, New York

“After reaching what I thought was a dead end in the research of my husband’s family, I was happy to learn from Jane that more resources were available. She provided links to web sites that were new to me, described archives I might visit, and helped me formulate a plan. Our time together was very productive, I learned a great deal, and I will certainly take advantage of Jane’s knowledge and mentoring skill as my work continues.”

~ Ellen Banks, Connecticut

“I just wanted to say thank you for your invaluable services. I am impressed with your professionalism and expertise on all the searches you have already completed. I look forward to many more ancestral investigations. I could not have done it without you. You are the best!”
