Family History Research

Chicago and Surrounding Area Professional Genealogy Services

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!

I provide:

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.

Writing

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:

  • National Archives, Great Lakes Region
  • Harold Washington Library
  • Newberry Library
  • Chicago Historical Society
  • Cook County Governmental Offices
  • Illinois Regional Archives Depositories, statewide
  • Illinois State Archives
  • Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library
  • Area Cemeteries

I am also able to conduct research in neighboring states, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Indiana.
