After making me wait 6 months for my research, they sent back the same data I gave them in my original request and some ridiculous results they'd slapped together. My grandparents couldn't be married before they were born, could they? I asked them to correct the errors and never heard from them again. Do not give your money to the RGD! Disreputable con artists.
