NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS UNTIL JAN 2020. I began doing genealogy actively in 1994, as something constructive to do with my degree in history. I have extensive experience doing research in Western, Central, and Northern New York, as well as side experience with Ontario, Quebec, and New England. New York is a tricky state in which to do genealogy, and it's taught me how to get creative when finding difficult ancestors. I also have experience researching Civil War connections (Union), and enjoy doing research not only on the soldiers, but also on their regimental histories. As a trained historian, I am a stickler for documentation and sources, and will provide clients not only with reports on positive results, but also full reports on all sources checked that did not yield results. I am currently self-employed and thus have flexible time for a variety of projects.

Service Description:
General and specific genealogical queries in New York State, with specializations in Western, Central, and Northern New York (no specific experience with NYC), house/property histories considered, records lookups and copying. Extensive experience in old colonial genealogy in New York and New England. Both small and long-term projects accepted. I have experience in Canadian and British genealogy, particularly Ontario, Quebec, and southern England (Hampshire). I have no expertise in adoption, genetic genealogy or recent immigration and will refer these cases elsewhere. Experience with lineage paperwork for Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Reasonable rates.
