My friend Thomas MacEntee over at Geneabloggers suggested a couple of weeks ago that I join Ancestry.com’s Expert Connect. Well I waited because I had so many other things on my to-do list and now Ancestry has shut their Expert Connect down.
If you are looking for a Chicago area, which also includes Indiana, Wisconsin, and Missouri, researcher, I’m happy to help!
In-depth Research Services
I conduct repository-based research; online research; and cemetery research.
Look-up Research Services
Just need a document or information or photos from a cemetery? I also conduct research in Northern Illinois for specific document searches such as Death Certificates, Census, Obituaries, etc., searches for a fee for each document plus postage. I will do cemetery look ups and email you digital photos. If plot layouts are requested, I will mail those to you. Contact me for a list of individual services and fees.
I prepare research reports; lineage society reports; blog, newsletter and magazine articles.
I am located in the Chicago suburbs and have access to many wonderful research facilities such as:
