Ray Palmer Research
Dr. W. Raymond
New England Genealogist
I am a genealogist with 16 years of experience with a primary emphasis on Massachusetts and New England. I tend to focus on Western Massachusetts families and am happy to search the following:
Vital Records, Obituaries, Berkshire County land and probate records as well as on-site cemetery research in Berkshire County.
Some federal records are also accessible including:
Census records, 1790-1940
Passenger arrival records (Most ports)
Revolutionary War Records
Naturalization Records (Massachusetts)
I am also willing to assist in obtaining Civil War Service and Pension files
In addition to record searching I am willing to take on in-depth research projects that have an emphasis on families with New England roots.
I also have the ability to obtain film held at the LDS Family History Library
I am a APG member and hold a PhD in history from the University of Sheffield
My fee for research is $30 per hour. I also charge the exact cost for photocopies and certificates
