Wood Pencil and Notebook

You stand at the base of a large family tree whose branches  spread deep into the past. Who are your ancestors, and how can you trace their paths through time and place? What journeys did they make, and how do they fit into  in your Tree of Life? How did their  stories shape your family's future? Our genealogy research services help you discover the myriad branches of your family tree, and how biology, culture, and family history have been woven together to make you who you are today.

                            Here at  River's Edge                               Geographics,  we                                specialize in  in                                        biogeography  research                      and education. While most of          our work relates to the biology and geography of natural resources, our biogeography skills can also be applied to studying many other aspects of  human geography and history as well.

And while we have particular interests in folk cultures and ethnobiology, and land-use and  and the evolution of cultural landscapes, we also  delved further into the study of migration journeys and  settlement patterns, immigration history, and genetic genealogy.

While these are  interesting research topics in and of themselves, they  can

also be applied uniquely to the study of  family histories and genealogy.


Therefore, our background specialties

in both biology and geography have  also been a springboard for nearly 30 years of genealogy research on behalf of  families in search of answers to genealogy questions!


As "genealogy detectives" we  have shared our experience and skills with many clients, and would be happy to  help you discover the story of YOUR family history!



Using  historic documents, maps, dna testing  and other genealogy resources,  we can help you  create a multigenerational family tree, explore your  ethnic roots, chart family journeys,   and maybe even solve a  family  mystery or two!
