COADB Find Your Ancestors
How COADB’s Genealogy Research Works
Our goal is to give you and your family a deeper understanding of where you came from and a closer connection to your history.
Every family tree and coat of arms search begins with what the family already knows about their lineage. That is then entered into what we call a working tree.
The next step is to find any supporting documents to prove the next ancestor back. In most cases, the family tree information is known for the first four generations. This is not always the case.
Once all the known generations are verified with Census Records, Birth and Baptismal Records, Genealogies, and books such as Burkes Family Records, and Parish Records, we move on to searching online databases as far back as they go.
After this initial search is done we can go back even further by contacting repositories such as libraries, historical societies, or archives.
In the last 16 years, we’ve helped thousands of families discover who and where they come from.
We serve families and individuals who are descended from English, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, German, French, Spanish, Swiss, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Dutch, Belgian, Italian, Russian, Austrian, Polish, Portuguese, and even some Eastern European countries.

“I had a wonderful experience with COADB.
Thank you, Tammy, for your amazing work on behalf of my family! Through your research, I came to know my brother as a person, rather than the icon of the family, gone too soon. It will be my sincere pleasure to recommend your company to family and friends. You have been extremely thorough and detailed. In addition, I appreciate how promptly you answered my questions and provided files according to my timeline. This has been a fabulous experience! – Lisa H., November 2023
I would give COADB 10 stars if I could. On my initial call with Tammy (owner), she couldn’t have been more patient with me and answered all of my questions. I had never traced my heritage before and had no idea of the detail that goes into this type of research. She stayed in touch with me and assured me she was collecting data that I would be very happy with. She was wrong, I was not happy.. I was ecstatic! She far exceeded my expectations and I was blown away by all the files she sent me. I have told family and friends (even my ex-wife) about 10-star Tammy (my nickname for her) If you are interested in your family lineage, stop looking and call COADB, you will not be sorry. I honestly, can’t wait to work with them again! Tammy – you and your company are rock stars!!! – William B., January 2022
TAMMY ROCKS!!!! She is awesome and blazing blazing-fast response!!! Highly impressed with her professionalism, promptness, and great work! She gave us a family heirloom Highly recommend – Randall Goodwin, August 2023
Did great work at a great price and always responded very quickly. Highly recommended. – Dennis L., January 2023
I ordered two family histories from COADB. The presentations were beautiful and informative. Incredible value and work was done right on schedule. We highly highly recommend working with COADB/Eledge Family. Genealogists Par Excellence! – Moira C., September 2022
“COADB and the team were a GREAT resource in helping me find the coat of arms I was looking for.
They also went above and beyond to perform the genealogy research needed to identify the coat of arms. I would use them again for sure! The service provided is personal and direct and the follow through went beyond my expectations.” – Cory L., August 2019
“I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all the work you and the rest of the folks at COADB did on this report. The little details you were able to put into the report made me feel good about it, and it will mean that much more to everyone.
It is truly going to make a wonderful gift not only for my mom but for the entire family. You have helped us recapture our history and tie us to our past in a time when everything seems to be reaping the whirlwind. I will be sure to mention how excellent you have all been on Christmas morning.” – Joel S., December 2019
