I visit various repositories in Suffolk & Middlesex counties in metro Boston. My focuses include (but are not limited to) Massachusetts research; colonial-era New England; tracking migratory families; researching emigrants' British Isles ancestors and relatives; and helping edit and design family history books. I love using unusual sources and social history to solve puzzles. I can also do short-term tasks like obtaining copies of documents from area repositories. I had been helping people with pro bono projects for several years, and after completing the BU Certificate in Genealogical Research in 2010, I began taking paying clients. I have since completed the ProGen Study Group program (2010-2012); taken BU's advanced genealogical courses entitled "Writing Family History Narratives and Other Genealogical Works" (2011) and "Civilly Uncommon: Advanced Legal Analysis for Genealogists" (2014); taken "Pre- and Post-Slavery Research" at the Midwest African-American Genealogical Institute (2016); taken "Practical Genetic Genealogy" at the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (2016); as well as attending numerous conferences, seminars, lectures, etc. I am currently a student in the correspondence course of the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies in England. My personal research has given me skills in tracking migratory people, both between and within countries, and has exposed me to a wide range of record sets and types of research. Some of the record sets I especially enjoy using are homesteading applications in North America, school records, historical newspapers, court records, and cemetery records, as well as using DNA test results as a complement to traditional research methods.

Service Description:
In addition to general genealogical and historical research, I can: retrieve records from numerous area repositories; compile gift books of photos & stories based on your research & family memorabilia; help you create a plan to better care for your private family archival materials; help you provide social history context for your research and/or take photographs of local historic sites; conduct oral history interviews; and other services. I enjoy doing research both for non-local clients who need local help with some aspect of their own personal or professional genealogical or historical research project and clients who would like someone else to research their family.
