I have completed more than 100 client projects since beginning professional work in September 2009, focusing on the 50 counties around Chicago in northeastern Illinois, southwestern Michigan, and northern Indiana -- as well as feeder areas to the east and emigration areas to the west. I am conveniently located to work in libraries and archives from Chicago to Fort Wayne. I particularly enjoy helping with problems that involve multiple locations and many different kinds of records. Since many court, probate, and property records remain off-line, there is no substitute for a researcher who can go to the courthouse and see what original records are there. (Indexes and transcriptions are not the same.) Successful projects have involved a name-changing Lithuanian immigrant in Gary, Indiana; distinguishing a cluster of Sylvester Browns in Michigan; finding records in Allen County, Indiana, that documented a family breakup in Pennsylvania; identifying the maiden name of an 1840s widow in a twice-burned Illinois county; and finding the only known death record for a woman in Dakota Territory in deeds recorded in upstate New York. Not all quests can be successful, and in any case I provide thoroughly documented reports of the searches made and the reliability of the evidence found. No charge for consulting on the question of whether I can help.
