Family history research in the Midwest USA
Family history research in the Midwest. Specializing in Ohio, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania but covering all of US as needed.
Professional researcher since 2002.
Graduated with distinction from National Institute for Genealogical Studies in 2015.
Member of the following organizations:

All clients are given a free initial consultation via email.
Research from minimal to extensive family history on an hourly basis with flexibility to handle special situations on a case by case basis.
My research fees are based on an hourly work fee plus expenses incurred. I start with an initial retainer which includes 3 hours of research time. Throughout the process clients are updated on the progress and given options with costs for paths the research can take along the way.
All clients are offered a free consultation where I ask for what research has previously been done and what the ultimate goal is of the current research they wish done. After reviewing this information, a strategy is put together demonstrating ways to obtain their goal and how likely this would be. Only after this is agreed upon by both parties is the retainer required for the actual research to begin. I have found this process makes for more realistic expectations on both sides while giving the client better results in the end.
