She exceeded my expectations, and I am very happy with the results of a superbly organized and well documented book of my family’s ancestors and relatives. It was a joy to work with her. My family and I were very pleased with her performance; therefore, I highly recommend her for genealogical research services."
"JG RootsFinders, Professional, Easy and Affordable"
“Several months ago my family and I began researching our history. We were planning a family reunion. Like most families planning such an event, we established a committee and set about the task of contacting other relatives. It was a task we found more difficult than expected. Aside from the usual problems of changed and outdated contact information, we often found ourselves unsure of the correct names of certain individuals and how and to whom they were related. In addition, the more we met and talked of relatives and our stories, it became quite clear that knowledge of our family’s history was incomplete and fading with the passing of each generation. We had tried to use online genealogy sites but they provided only the most basic information. That is when we turned to JG RootsFinders for assistance.
JG RootsFinders immediately helped us trace our family’s history. We sat down with its director, Juanita Gaston, and provided her with the little information we had. She explained how genealogy research is conducted and that it is essential to make use of all available sources of data. A skill that is important and necessary but one that can also be time-intensive and nuanced, especially when researching correct spelling of names, name changes, and dates of significant events.
JG RootsFinders made quick and efficient use of census data, varied historical records, family interviews, and searches of collateral ancestors to re-connect my family to our heritage and to each other. We could not be happier with the results. JG RootsFinders was professional, easy, and affordable. I recommend them with confidence to all my friends."
"Although interested in my ancestry, I had always had a healthy dose of skepticism about the extent to which the lineage of African Americans could accurately be traced. How could you possibly trace with certainty the history of a people uprooted from their homes, transported a continent away, wrenched away from their families and robbed of their identity? I had tried to search my family history with such limited success that I had concluded it was un-doable. But, JG RootsFinders made a believer of me!
Extraordinary! Surprising! Impressive! I can’t say enough about how impressed I have been with the results of my family search. Dr. Gaston has excellent research skills and a commitment to getting it right. I recommend her without reservation if you’re interested in tracing your roots."

JG Rootsfinders … “an absolute delight and pleasure to work with.
This service helped me by “honing in on gaps in knowledge about my ancestors. Both of my and all four of parents my siblings have passed away. All of my aunt and uncles and older cousins are also no longer with me so having this information is such a treasure. This work provided a connection to the story of who I am and is worth more than one would know. “
"JG RootsFinders was great to work with. My family loved the thorough research that traced our ancestry back before the Civil War, and unlocked many unknown relatives. An awesome experience."
"JG RootsFinders was super to work with. I felt they were going to get to the end of the line as far as the roots were concerned. I had that confidence. Highly recommend if you want to know who you are."
“I have hired four Professional Genealogists over some 15 years. None better that JG.
“I wanted to learn more about the "personalities" of my grandfather's and his brother's families; they were located in Woodville, Leon County, Florida. I had census data, FindAGrave records, all that stuff. I wanted "where did they live, weddings, deaths, community interactions", things like that. So, my request to JG RootsFinders was somewhat different.
Dr. Gaston took my request and "ran with it". We called it a "Document Retrieval Project". During the project she communicated with me frequently, forwarded some items that she had "discovered", asked what I thought, took my suggestions and dug deeper.
When I received the package of her reports, I was ecstatic. My father and his six siblings were orphaned in 1908, none older than 17. I knew that they had moved from Leon County, FL, and were in Columbus County, NC, in the 1910 census but where were they before and after that?
The materials that Dr. Gaston recovered now allow me to compose a much more detailed and inclusive history of my father and his siblings. And - she provided an extensive history of my grandfather's brother's family. Now I can write his family history, completing my work on the children of my great-grandfather.”
"JG Rootsfinders helped my family find answers to questions we had all our lives. We were able to get information about our grandmother, who seemed to have fallen through the cracks as far as official documents are concerned. I am so happy and appreciative to them for giving us back our family history. Your team was thorough in their research and finish product, the clients reports. Thank you also for your professional. JG Rootsfinders motto: "Digging for your roots as though they were mine" is SPOT ON!!!"
