I am thrilled at how quickly (and convincingly) Peter Clifford of Forefathers was able to break through a brick wall that had I myself could not after literally a hundred hours of probing census, bmd records, and internet searching.

My only regret is not reaching out sooner as I would have saved time AND the money I spent on several birth certificates using the assumed name.

Pete wove the whole thing together, using up all of the available facts (including wills and deeds) that left me without any doubt as to the identity of my ancestor.
