Research by Suzanne


Helping attorneys develop accurate genealogical records for complex legal cases

Holtzclaw Family


With deep roots in South Carolina, Suzanne has developed an unparalleled expertise in researching the families in the area.


With over 20 years of genealogical work experience, I’ve had the great pleasure to work with lawyers and families alike to uncover unknown information. From immigration records to new branches on the family tree to finding a records anomaly that breaks open the case, I approach every project with the same discipline and exactitude of research.


Born and raised in South Carolina’s Upcountry, I have focused much of my research on the region and am able to provide local research support for other genealogists throughout the country. I look forward to working with you on your next project. Fill out this quick questionnaire and tell me a little bit more.
