Beginning a family history was done on my behalf. Leaving no stones unturned in community history, I searched on behalf of those who had Pennsylvania family history while a college student. Long summer days were spent searching courthouse and naturalization records. Leisure time was spent on the patio of a house once owned by George Catlin.

Adoption searches, family history and historical assignments are accepted at all phases of their development. That includes adoption searches, the beginning stages of family history, answers to complete missing pieces of family puzzles and custom in depth searches. I have access to a wider range of historical resources than those that are usually considered for a family or historical search. The doors of the past are unlocked with found keys.
