U.S. & Canadian Research
I provide expertise and access to many of the records required to research your family history. Whether you need help researching one person, one branch of your family or an entire family tree, I can help. Working with you, I will review prior research, define a research goal, create a reasonable plan of action and conduct the required research. This service is completely customized, based on your goals.
At the completion of the research, and after a thorough analysis of the evidence, you will be provided a formal report summarizing the research done and a list of detailed findings with full source citations. The report will contain a list of next steps for continuing your research. You will also receive copies of all documents that were found in the course of the research.
I have over 30 years’ experience in the records of the Germanic empire (covering current Germany, France, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic and other Western European countries). Knowing how to get from the U.S. back to a place of origin in the home country can be challenging. Just knowing that your immigrant came from Prussia or Germany is not enough. I will help you locate the ancestral home and provide you with all documents found. Records can be in a number of languages, depending on the time period. Translation services are also available.
