Genealogical research, writing, and editing

U.S. genealogical research, with emphasis on Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina, and Missouri. Census lookups (all states), record retrieval, lineage society applications, pedigree charts. Records and cemetery photography in Madison, Morgan, and Limestone Counties, Alabama. Family Photo

Do you need help preparing an article, family history newsletter, or book? I have more than 30 years of experience as a writer, editor, and researcher.

No job is too small -- just let me know what you need. Rates are $25 per hour for most research, but simple lookups are often less.
