    Hello everyone

    I need all of your help with a name for my genealogy business. I am working on getting the license, web site, etc. and need a name that catches attention, describes the business, and well you know. My husband is getting laid off on Tuesday so I am pressured to speed things up a bit and start getting more work. All of our heads together is sure better than just my poor brain that is just so frustrated :bash: ...so please help. And thank you!

    Here is what I have come up with so far:Relative search
    Relative investigations
    Relative study
    Exploring genealogy
    Genealogy study
    Family hunt
    Investigating family connections
    Hunting family connections
    Families
    Next of kin
    Study of next of kin
    Next of kin investigations
    Hunting for folks
    Seeking ancestors
    Ancestor investigations
    Examining ancestors
    Kindred investigations
    Ancestor study
    Record investigations
    Record examinations
    Research in WV
    Researchin WV

    I do genealogy research by searching public records, searching for obituraries, looking on the net for family connections, and numerous other things. I have become involved in doing adoption searches and have thought about making this a speciality. One other thing that I have done is obtaining deliquent property tax information. I am also persuing a paralegal degree and have been doing title searches. I enjoy doing all the work, except the property tax thing - I feel sorry for the people who have not been able to pay their taxes. Any thougths, suggestions or ideals would be appreciated.

    THANKS! :)


    And when we get this one named, maybe we can help my DH with a name for his business that he has been comtemplating for a year......building custom chopper cycles! :haha:

    How about just
    Finders

    That will allow you to tie in any future research type work and tie in the genaology stuff

    Don't wish to discourage you but you better have quite a few names lined up. Do a "Domain" search to see it any of your choices are still available. I've been hunting for a name for my site for months and every time I come up with one it's taken.

    Would you believe that there are people that register domain names and then turn around and sell them (for a good buck too). One way to make some money if you have the bucks to register names and wait for someone who wants it bad enough to pay for it..............http://www.sedo.com/main.php3?language=us&partnerid=14037

    Yea, and I think it's a bunch of crap. They buy these domain names for about 8 bucks, then won't let them go for less than $1,000!

    Not only do you have to check online to see about business names -

    You have to make sure that your name is available in your state

    I presume you are doing a sole proprietorship?

    I liked the use of "NEXT OF KIN" somehow or "KINDRED"

    although if you are going to add in other types of research, that might limit your advertising

    I also do genealogy research!

    Thanks for the replies and keep them coming if anybody has any more. I really like some of the suggestions and I am going to play around with them some more.


    Heather, what do you call your genealogy service? What part of PA do you cover? I do mostly WV and some Ohio and could do some parts of KY.


    Who else do genealogy?

    Thanks

    I vote for "Kindred Investigations". You could investigate more than genealogy...for all they know, somebody named Kindred could own the company.

    I'm mostly western PA & do some NY also

    Bell Business Solutions is my business name, because I mostly do business services (ie web development, software install & training, etc.)
    The genealogy is on the side & mostly word of mouth.....
    I started doing it for my family & my hubby's family & then it grew -

    I also do House Histories, which is really fun -

    Genealogy is addictive, so for those of you who've never tried it - BEWARE :D
