Geneaology

Research

TerraX historians are well-acquainted with the process of performing genealogical research to establish family lineage and determine next of kin. This research aids significantly in determining the most appropriate relocation site for any found graves.

The TerraXplorations staff includes seven highly trained and experienced bioarchaeologists. Each of our professionals is well-versed in the procedures and regulations regarding cemetery investigation and relocation. TerraX is happy to serve our clients in all aspects of cemetery detection, delineation, relocation, and reporting.
