Testimonials:
"To anyone needing historical or genealogical research conducted in the New York City area, I wholeheartedly recommend Meryl Schumacker! I myself have 37 years of research experience; but even 'experts' need assistance now and then. In my case, I needed someone in Manhattan to examine documents in person that were unavailable online. I searched for someone with both experience and credibility and selected Meryl from a long list of contenders. As expected, her assistance proved superior and she was able to provide me with exactly what I needed in a most professional and efficient manner. Thank you, Meryl. Much appreciated!" -Michael Tormey "I certainly would endorse you for helping people find out about their family backgrounds! I really appreciate your help-you were very professional, timely and answered all of my questions thoroughly. If I need further information in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to contact you again." -Barbara
