About Dig

My name is Heather McTavish Taylor but who am I?

  • After 20 years working as an Executive for several Packaged Goods companies, I realized that there was more to life than climbing the proverbial corporate ladder. I decided to follow my passion for uncovering my family history and I haven’t looked back since!
  • I am professional and efficient – you will get your reports on time and within budget – no surprises or excuses
  • I am a dog with a bone – I will not let up until I have looked at every record available to answer your ancestry questions
  • I am passionate about de-mystifying family lore, digging up a family’s roots and bringing to light the stories of our ancestors
