Services

Professional Services Reduced

Unless you are a former client or have a question about Norwegian genealogy, I no longer provide professional services. 

Billable Services

I offer the following consulting and research services:

  • Build family trees and family group sheets
  • Locate documents and records (I’m near D.C.)
  • Break through brick walls
  • Write reports with reference citations
  • Give presentations at family reunions

Genealogy research varies considerably on the needs of the client. I listen carefully to what the customer wants and tailor my rates and services accordingly.

 
Payment

I accept payment via check, PayPal, or bank transfer.  

Areas of Specialization

Americans have migrated so much throughout history that professional American genealogists are relatively adept at researching almost anywhere in the 50 states.  This is especially true given the recent explosion of Internet access to various ancestry records (e.g, vital records, census data, military files, wills & probate documents, land records). 

With that being said, I have more experience in northern states than southern, and am particularly knowledgeable about the states of Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, and New York. 

My strongest area of specialization is Norwegian genealogy.

Norway

19th-century immigrants from Norway, particularly those who settled in the upper midwest.  I am especially familiar with ancestors from Sogn og Fjordane and Akershus counties.

Military History

The experiences of soldiers who fought in America’s wars and conflicts.  I am especially familiar with Civil War and World War II records.

Scots-Irish

Presbyterians who were transplanted from low-land areas of Scotland to Northern Ireland (Ulster) in the 1600s and then immigrated to America in the 18th century.

Norway

19th-century immigrants from Norway, particularly those who settled in the upper midwest. I am particularly familiar with ancestors from Sogn og Fjordane and Akershus counties.

Quakers

Founded by George Fox in 1650, the Religious Society of Friends joined the ranks of those fleeing religious persecution in England to come to America, beginning in the 1680s.

Military History

The experiences of soldiers who fought in America’s wars and conflicts. I am especially familiar with Civil War and World War II records.
