Welcome to Buffat Genealogical & Historical Research Services. We are based in Springfield, Missouri, ideally located for genealogical and historical research throughout Missouri and the Midwest.
At Buffat Genealogical & Historical Research Services, our passion is genealogical and historical research. It is a great privilege to honor those that have passed before us by preserving their legacies. Genealogy and history brings us closer to our ancestors’ past and closer to understanding ourselves and our family’s present.
Whether you are just starting, or you have extensive research experience, you are among millions of Americans seeking to learn about the journey that once brought their families to the United States.
Today we can access a wide variety of genealogical and historical records through multiple sources, including the internet. However, genealogy is still a time-intensive process and most information is available only through non-internet sources.
