"Every man is a quotation from all his ancestors."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Family. Home. That's where we belong. And part of that belonging is knowing where we came from. Beyond the biology, the lives and experiences of our parents and grands, and their parents' parents, have given us the traditions and values that make us who we are. Genealogy Solutions is a personal history research and publishing firm committed to preserving that legacy so that it can be passed to the future.
GTGS is based in Pensacola, Florida. This places us in close proximity to a number of important archives and libraries, particularly those dedicated to the history of the Gulf South. We are also invested in staying wired to the ever-expanding world of digital genealogy. The focus of GTGS is currently on the families of the ante-bellum south as well as those of the Five Civilized Tribes (Creek, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Seminole) who inhabited its borderlands.
GTGS provides you with informed, reliable answers to your family history questions. To that end, our work adheres to the standards of the Board for the Certification of Genealogists:
(a) We conduct a reasonably exhaustive search in reliable sources for all information that is or may be pertinent to the identity, relationship, event, or situation in question;
(b) We collect and include in our compilation a complete, accurate citation to the source or sources of each item of information we use;
(c) We analyze and correlate the collected information to assess its quality as evidence;
(d) We resolve any conflicts caused by items of evidence that contradict each other or are contrary to a proposed (hypothetical) solution to the question; and
(f) We arrive at a soundly reasoned, coherently written conclusion.
