"We have always found her research to be accurate, detailed and provided in a timely manner. Sandra's attention to detail and tenacity show through in all the research she carries out as is evidenced by the fact she has solved most all of our mysteries involving persons of Scottish or English heritage. She is not someone who gives up easily and will try every avenue available to her to fulfil the requests we have. The research completed by Sandra and Heather Roots is exemplary.

"I must praise Sandra Shanks for her investigative skills as a Forensic Genealogist. I have nothing but admiration for her proficient persistence in tracking down her quarry in order to provide well presented information supported by copy cerificates of births, marriages, deaths and passenger lists for those who had departed these shores for Canada and Australia. Information was always provided on her progress and her tenacious investigations enabled me to make contact with my one remaining living cousin whom I had not seen for sixty-seven years."
