About Me

I got my start in genealogy at the age of 12, when I first learned how to work with the old film readers at the Wisconsin Historical Society. I have worked with clients since 2008, first through Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, and now through Genlighten. Since 2012 I have also been building my knowledge of the use of DNA for genealogy and I enjoy helping adoptees (and others with unknown parentage situations) utilize DNA to solve their individual cases. Professionally I work in the medical field, but I dedicate my free time to genealogy, and I make regular trips back to my hometown of Madison, WI. I spend a lot of my free time at the Wisconsin Historical Society and traipsing through cemeteries. If you have any special requests, please ask and I will see what I can do for you!

    $5.00/record

    Description

    I will search for the obituaries in the Capital Times or Wisconsin State Journal (1910-present). In more recent years, Madison-based papers often contain obituaries for persons in surrounding towns throughout Dane County, such as Stoughton, Sun Prairie, Middleton, etc. Earlier years have a decreased chance of an obituary being found because published obituaries or death notices were not as common in that time period. I can provide either paper or electronic copies of the obituary. You must provide specific name and date of death for the person you are looking for, as searching through newspapers can be very time consuming. If you have a special case, please ask and I can see what I can do to help you.

    Ordering Instructions

    Please provide specific details such as name, date, and location for the person you are looking for. Please specify whether you would like a paper or digital copy of the record(s) and what format. Formats available include JPEG and PDF.

The provider did an excellent job locating these records. She made extra copies of certain documents to make sure the information was legible. The work was accomplished in a very timely, efficient manner. In addition, she provided many useful and interesting insights, not only into the records themselves, but into the customs and traditions of the era in question. I would highly recommend Jade's services if you need any research or look-ups in Madison.
