Helping to search out people from the past

Glenn King is an experienced Family Historian and knows his way around record collections around the world. Put his perseverance and problem-solving ability to work on your project.

Genealogy Research

Glenn King offers reasonable hourly rates or, to take out the unknown time factor, he will put together a package rate.

Family History research is carried out in archives and repositories in the Kingston area as well as other repositories throughout Ontario, and across the rest of Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.   Sources include, but are not limited to, vital statistics, estate records, newspaper articles, church records and cemetery records.   Computer-based searches as well as the LDS (Family History Centre) are also utilized.

Before Glenn begins, and as the research work progresses, your family information will be entered into a genealogy database program.  From this, a copy of your family pedigree and/or GEDCOM file can be generated.

All of Glenn’s clients receive full, written reports outlining the positive and the negative results along with any relevant documentation.  He will gladly answer any questions that arise so that you understand the results.  With every report Glenn offers suggestions for further searches but also his honest opinion on whether further searching is warranted.  Is it really worth spending the time trying to find that additional “tidbit” of information?

Your Family History in Book Format

The results of your family history can be put together in book format.  Not only will this book include the information specific to your family, but it will be “fleshed out” with maps, historical, political and geographical background and other pertinent commentary.  All this can help you better understand the world in which your ancestors lived and, perhaps, the reasons behind their actions and movements.

Photographic Services

Glenn King offers digital photography services for clients who are interested in obtaining a photograph of a headstone, a former residence, or an historic building located in the Kingston area.

Probate Research

Glenn King offers probate research services with the aim of locating missing beneficiaries and unknown heirs to prove their right to inheritance.

He has successfully located beneficiaries in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.


Glenn is pleased to have helped others learn about their Family History. Here's what they have to say:
To anyone thinking of using the services of Mr. Glenn King, I highly encourage you to do so.  I have an ancestor who is a huge mystery to all of our family. Thanks to Mr. King we have found his obituary, as well as that of his first wife, and the fact that my Grandfather had 8 half sibs.  I had hired others before Mr. King and was never satisfied with their work.  Mr. King has gone way above and beyond to help knock down my brick wall and all at very affordable, reasonable costs.

I can’t think of a better person to try to find information than Mr. King. I am happy with the job he did. I recommend him to everyone who talks to me about geneology.

Wonderfully professional, efficient and friendly service that enabled me solve a one hundred year old family mystery that I imagined I might never find the answer to.

Searching the Internet for a genealogist in another country is often
disappointing. No disappointment here though. Glenn King was prompt,
courteous, friendly and very thorough. In my case he solved a problem
that appeared to me to be insurmountable, and which required
knowledge of both Canadian and US records from the late 1800s and
early 1900s. And the price was right. In fact it was extremely
helpful that he accepted my local (Australian) cheques.

I was very happy to return to him some months later for further
research. Highly recommended.

I was on the verge of giving up looking for my Canadian side of my family when I found Glenn. He not only found my uncle, but also my grand-uncle too.  I now know what happened to them but, without his help, I would never have discovered them.  Glenn is very helpful, friendly, and affordable. I would highly recommend his services.
