If you need help...
I have researched our family history off and on since 1980 and along the way have amassed an astounding amount of information, including documents, photographs, books, and sources. Now I spend my time doing research for others, helping with various cemetery projects, continuing the research on our families, and adding to this website.
Most of our families are from southwestern Ohio and northern Kentucky, so I have researched extensively in Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren Counties in Ohio, and Kenton County in Kentucky. In addition, there are numerous other "pockets" of this country on which I have spent almost as much time: Carter County in Kentucky; Gallia, Jackson, and Vinton Counties in Ohio; Ontonagon County in Michigan; Kanawha and Wyoming Counties in West Virginia. While I enjoy traveling to other areas to research, the internet has made it much easier to access information all over the world right from home.
Don't get me wrong - I'll still jump at the chance to visit courthouses, cemeteries, and libraries, regarless of location! But the many advantages of being able to do much of this online now are not lost on me. I remember countless hours in courthouses and libraries, glued to microfilm and microfiche readers, poring over decaying documents with a magnifying glass and thinking there has to be a better way!
So I am a huge fan of the wonderful sites that give us such easy access to a wealth of documents. Please visit my blog posts about There's A Method to My Madness and Websites I Use and Recommend for information on the programs and sites I use frequently, many on a daily basis, and a brief description of the records found there.
If you need help with your search, please contact me. If I can, I will help in whatever way I can at no charge. Or if your request is extensive and you don't have (countless) hours to do it yourself, I am available for hire. My rates are extremely reasonable and I can quote you by the job or hour, whichever you prefer. Simply use the Contact Form, giving as much detail about your request as you can.
