"Looking for ancestors in the American South or Midwest?

There are few endeavors more personally satisfying than connecting with your ancestors. It can also be a frustrating process, particularly if you’re looking for someone in a location with which you’re unfamiliar. If you’re trying to make connections in the Southeast or Midwest, I can help. I am especially well-versed in Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

Over the past 25 years, I have researched an extensive list of families in state archives, libraries and county-based record repositories. I have easy access to these resources and know how to use them to advance and resolve your family research project.

I will provide you with a comprehensive electronic or hard copy report. My hourly rate is $15; copying costs are additional (I do not charge for copying for research projects in Kentucky.)

I look forward to working with you on your family research projects. Thanks.

I am only able to search local records in AR, TN, and MS. I live in Eastern Arkansas, about halfway between Little Rock, AR and Memphis, TN.

These trips would be an extra expense and will be priced on an individual basis. My fees will be $10 per hour with a two hour minimum. Any cost of copying and postage will also be extra options.

I look forward to working with you and helping you research your family. Email Betsy Barnes at BeBar30@yahoo.com to start searching.

Expertise in Denmark, England, and Colonial America, and Salt Lake City LDS


SEDONA ARIZONA

I have a PhD in geophysics and am an explorer of the Pacific Ocean with the discovery of three active submarine volcanoes to my credit. What does that have to do with genealogy? Well, it helps a lot. And the satisfaction of discovery is much the same. Over the past 16 years, I have explored my own family tree in Northern England to 1587; in Denmark to 1642; in western Pennsylvania, with ancestors in New Jersey, to 1768; and in New England to about 1630, with ancestors in Old England, into the 1500s. I read documents written back to those early dates in both English and Danish.

I have freely helped many others find their ancestors in these same places and times. I live only nine hours south of Salt Lake City and visit the LDS family-history library there frequently. I also have microfilms brought to the nearby Cottonwood, Arizona, LDS family-history center for reading. Much, of course, can be found by skillful use of the internet, sifting good information from the bad. I recognize the need to consult primary sources.

I will charge $10 per hour for work which can efficiently be done locally and $20 per hour for work best done in Salt Lake City (plus expenses for copying, film rental, etc.).

INDIANA

Fort Wayne Area

My experience includes over 40 years of personal research on my family in New England and New York State and of my husband's from the Midwest that includes German, French Canadian, French and Polish immigrants. I have been certified with the Board for Certification of Genealogists, Washington, DC since August of 1978 and have been a working professional researcher since that date. My client work has been in the areas of North and South East as well as the Midwest, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois and Iowa. The majority of my research has been at the Historical Genealogical Department of the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana whose collection is considered second only to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah and is the largest historical genealogical collection in a public library. Its Midwest collection and historical genealogical magazine collection are both considered superior to that of the Family History Library.

I charge $20 per hour and require a retainer. A retainer of $100 is suggested, but any convenient amount is acceptable. Upon receipt of my retainer my turn around time is approx. 2-3 weeks. As well as the Allen County Public Library, I will make research trips to other libraries, courthouses, cemeteries, etc., up to 200 miles from the Ft. Wayne, Indiana area, but if necessary there will be an additional charge for mileage/room. Feel free to check my website for further details on my credentials and sources available to me.

KENTUCKY


Madison and other areas

I can assist you in researching your Kentucky ancestors. I live in Berea, (Madison County) Kentucky, which is located about 30 miles south of Lexington. I mainly work in two college libraries in the area, those being Berea College and Eastern Kentucky University. Both have excellent special collection and archive rooms. Berea College is wonderful for tracing Appalachian roots. The EKU genealogy room is probably one of the best kept secrets in family research. The Kentucky and Virginia collections are quite extensive. There is also a wealth of information concerning the states of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, New York, Tennessee, North Carolina, Missouri and Indiana. I will do all lookups...tax, land, birth, marriage, and death records; tax lists, census reports, wills, cemetery and funeral home records...whatever your request, I will find it!
My home library is considerable, having been blessed with this gift by my grand-aunt, a working genealogist for fifty years. I have numerous books dealing with the subject of eastern Kentucky, as well as books relating to Kentucky tax records, land grants, census, tax lists, wills and land records. In reference to the state of Virginia, I own several books, to include those on Revolutionary War soldiers, marriages, and other records. My library also includes books on royal ancestry; the Magna Charta Sureties; and Charlemagne's descendants.
I will discuss photographing tombstones and buildings, as well as traveling to towns in Kentucky for library and courthouse research.
My fee is $10 per hour; it will be slightly higher if travel outside Madison County is necessary.

    NEW ENGLAND RESEARCH

    Massachusetts
    Connecticut
    Rhode Island

    Are your roots in New England?

        Let me help you fill in the bare branches on your family tree, or perhaps find a way through that genealogical "brick wall" you're too far away to research. I can help find the documents necessary for application to lineage societies such as the Mayflower Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, etc., and get them certified, find your ancestor's graves and photograph them, find out what ship they arrived on, or even look for the house they lived in 200 years ago.
        As well as pursuing primary source research in historic town halls and courthouses, I regularly visit genealogical libraries and archives throughout New England, each of which has manuscripts and documents not to be found elsewhere. Every family's story is fascinating and a link to history.

    Basic research rates $40 per hour.

    NEW JERSEY

        With over 20 years experience, it is my good fortune to spend my time providing professional family research services in connection with New Jersey records, including, but not limited to, vitals, church, cemetery, land, probate, court, etc. In addition, my services extend to house history research and problem solving.
    Local relatives or old neighbors are another means of enlarging your scope of family information. With your permission, a meeting with an aunt, grandfather, or elderly friend of the family can be arranged, an interview conducted, and a report forwarded to you.
    And, if you would like to broaden your knowledge by studying the historical events surrounding your ancestors, reading material can be suggested.

    NEW YORK



    NEW YORK CITY

       I offer full-service genealogical research in the Primary Source Records repositories within New York City. If you have a need for genealogical research in this City, I'm here to help you. I do Vital Records, Census, and City Directory searches, Will and Probate searches in all the Surrogate's Courthouses in the City, Obituary searches. I also do Cemetery research, gravesite locating and photography as well.
       I do Naturalization searches, property ownership record searches, and searches for cases of legal litigation that your ancestors might have been involved in.
    No job is too small--I have no minimum contract requirements. It is my opinion that one needn't be wealthy to be able to afford some on-site genealogical help in New York City.
    I'm a member of the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society, and I have full access to the resources of their wonderful Library....I can make these work for you, too.

    My rates are reasonable, and my methods are tenacious! If there's something you need searched out, and if you cannot do it yourself at the LDS Family History Centers closest to you, send me a message--- I can access documents that simply aren't available anywhere else in genealogical libraries.

    I have been doing genealogical research for 15 years and am a member of many historical societies. I have done much volunteer research for the Somerset County Historical Society and have put out 4 books with another one due out in a few months.
    I enjoy the research as a hobby but I treat the names I research as my own with many satisfied clients who can attest. I do a little in many counties but I limit my search to Cambria and Somerset which I know the best. I try to back everything up with documents to serve as proof. I try to do my best at something that I really enjoy.
