About Me

I grew up on the west side of Cincinnati, Ohio and Dearborn County Indiana. After spending 7 years in the Army, my family settled northeast of Boston, Massachusetts. I have been involved in genealogical research for many years working on my own family history and family tree work.. It was a natural progression to professional, for me. I research all of New England, much of the Midwest US and Ireland. I have posted many of the jobs I do on my listing. If you need something you don't see posted, I'd be happy to make one for you! I have extensive experience in military records having spent 23 years in the military. Weekly trips to NARA Boston, MA Registry of Vital Records & the MA Archives. Maine Vital Records & Archives!

Research Specialties

War of 1812, Mexican War, Civil War and periods of no declared war; Service and Pension Records, military unit histories. I pull records from many repositories. Many military records were lost in a fire at the NPRC, making researching veterans very difficult. I have found ways to still get info.
