The first step of any genealogy project, large or small, consists of determining the research goal: what do you wish to learn? Next I do preliminary research to learn what records are available to serve that goal and develop a research strategy. With this information I am able to prepare for you a scope of work proposal, tailored to your unique requirements. (How do we do this?) Every project is different, both in goals and presentation, so it is difficult to generalize. A few ideas:
- Beginning family tree assembling two or three generations.
- Help you break through your research brick wall. I specialize in discovering maiden names and using collateral name research to reveal the hidden ancestor.
- Develop a CD or web archive to share with family
Drop me a line or an email to discuss your goals. We begin with a few emails and from there I offer one or more suggested paths of research. If you are unsure of what you want to learn, that is fine, I can help you narrow it down. Interested in booking a lecture for your society, taking a class or getting one on one coaching?
