Sherlock Combs Genealogy comes down to solving mysteries. Observation and analysis lead to the solution of one mystery, which in turn provides clues that help you tease out the solution of the next. That’s what can do!
That’s how one of my childhood heroes, Sherlock Holmes, solved mysteries. With his trusty magnifying glass, he observed details others missed. He burned cigars to ash and described each set of ashes to distinguish one type from the other. Every case required keen observation, methodical analysis, and insightful interpretation to tease out the truth.
Genealogy is like that. Keen observation requires going beyond finding documents that are easily available online. When the game is afoot, Sherlock Combs heads out to find original documents in archives and repositories. If there are several (or dozens) of people with the same name, Sherlock Combs methodically traces each one backward and forward in time to distinguish your ancestor from other people with the same name.
If you have a genealogy conundrum you want solved, call on Sherlock Combs to tease out the truth of your family history, no matter how bizarre it might be. After all, “when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”
