"I found Colleen to be a real professional. Her work was very thorough, well researched and done in a very timely manner. I have been seeking some unknown family members for many years and Colleen uncovered some excellent leads in my search. She gave me very sound advice on how to proceed in identifying those unknown family members. Having spent forty years in law enforcement I would have welcomed her on any team I worked on. I have no doubt that I will use her services in the future."
“Colleen’s work is thorough and meticulous. She has a superb grasp of genealogical methods and sources, and her writing is clear and to the point. I would unhesitatingly recommend Colleen for any kind of family history research.”
“Those of us that are interested in Irish heritage do realize that tracing Irish genealogy, is indeed very challenging and difficult. However after working with Colleen and witnessing her professionalism, her honesty, and her passion, prevents any unnecessary frustration. I found Colleen to be exhaustive in the research she provides, and I greatly appreciate her personal interest in the subject matter that Colleen delivers.”
“A ‘brick wall’ in my maternal Irish lines had me stymied. Because I was running out of time before my planned travel to Ireland, I began looking for help from someone who had both Canadian and Irish knowledge, skill and experience.
The Edmonton Branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society’s offered a session on “Genealogy Services for Hire” and Colleen Murray was one of the panelists. After her impressive presentation, I shared my research objectives with her.
Colleen was very professional, practical and highly effective. Her approach was pleasantly collaborative and our conversations during our project helped clarify information and avoided duplication of effort. The genealogical report Colleen produced was high quality, easy to use, and well organized. As hoped, she broke through my brick walls and confirmed my maternal Irish Doyle lineage.
I would highly recommend Colleen’s services and am planning to engage her again soon.”
“It’s with great pleasure I give the following testimonial of Colleen Murray’s genealogical work. At the time I spoke with Colleen it was shortly before a holiday to Ireland. She absolutely wowed me with the information she was able to gather and present to me. I read it on the flight over and was thrilled to find we had booked a stay in a town just minutes from where my Great Grandmother was born and raised. We visited the town and were even able to talk to a local historian. As well her information included the tragic story of my Great Grandfather; including newspaper clippings pleading the family’s case. Many thanks for your effort, the layout and detail and your enthusiasm for my family.”
