ENGLAND -Multiple Researchers

England #1

General Reasearch In England & USA

I am not a professional researcher; but I have 35 yrs of general research experience with English records and US records. I have taught family History classes and served as a Family History Consultant for the LDS Church for a total of 5 yrs. I live in Roy, Utah, just 40 minutes north of Salt Lake City, and all the records afforded by the LDS Church.

My fees are $15 per hr, with a four hour minimum. Cost of copying and certificates are extra and always an option.

I keep complete and accurate research records which will be available to you via email.

England #2

Dorset and Hampshire areas...

Sue Newman BA: History Researcher

If you are looking for ancestors or other local history information in my area I should be able to help you.

I specialise in Christchurch, Dorset, UK, where we have extensive records and archives to consult of a very varied nature. There is, for instance, a run of The Christchurch Times from 1855 to present day for consultation, and I hold the database of entries on Christchurch from regional newspapers before 1855, commencing 1740. Other records include the parish registers, directories, maps, diaries, account books, deeds, photographs, memorial inscriptions etc.

I can reach both Dorset and Hampshire Record Offices, where Christchurch records are also kept (Christchurch was in the latter county until 1974) and also can research information relating to other areas within these two counties.

I am currently Vice-Chair of the Christchurch Local History Society, an author of four local history publications and another in preparation, and have special interest in the Poor Law. I have priviledged access to workhouse material held on microfilm locally concerning recipients of poor relief from the early 18th century. I have similar priviledged access to a private collection.

I have been an active researcher in Christchurch history for about twelve years and have dealt with a wide range of enquiries in that time. I have good contacts at the local and county level.

More information is available on my website on My hourly rate is 10 per hour. -Sue Newman

I am an avid amateur researcher, but have been researching genealogical records for two years now.

I specialize in records from the Record Office in London, England. I am able to travel to London to find certificates, or research the census that is there. My hourly rate is 10 per hour (about $15.85 US). I am happy to just order your certificates, or do look-ups, 10 years either side of your date.

I live in High Wycombe Buckinghamshire in the UK, so would be happy to research locally too.

Please feel free to e-mail me for any other charges and I'd be glad to help you out.

I am an accomplished genealogist with more than 35 years of research experience. I have, also, taught classes on how to create databases and to do research for more than 10 years, and have helped many people break through those frustrating "brick walls". I do volunteer work at our local Family History Center. I live in Highland, UT which is within 30 minutes of the Salt Lake City Family History Library, where I do most of my research. I can do research in whatever state your ancestors have lived. The Salt Lake City Family History Library has vital records (birth, marriage, death), for all states and most countries. I can search for the records in family biographies there as well as look in wills, estates, tax and land records, and county and city histories. The library also has the Federal Census Records for the years 1790-1930 for most states as well as census, vital and probate records for Canada. There are parish records back to 1500 for England and records for various countries in Europe as well as other countries.

My fee is $15 an hour plus copy costs. I will fax, email or send the information I find for you and keep in touch while I'm researching. I will be happy to do as little as one lookup, or research in all records available for your family. Whatever you need, I will do my best to find the information for you! At your request, I will be happy to create a database as I put the family members together so you will be able to print out family group records and pedigree charts. I always list my sources as well as any pertinent notes. I would love to help you find your ancestors and to help you create your family tree!

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.

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, 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.

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.

    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.

   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.

    Brian J. Ensley has found around 80 of my ancestors in the Cambria area so I can attest to his effectiveness at finding elusive ancestors! He is very good at what he does! -Kathy

    Brian J. Ensley, Researcher...
    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.

    All of Rhode Island

       I would love to help you learn more about your immigrant ancestors who settled in Rhode Island. I have fifteen years experience in researching immigrants, especially Italians, Irish, English, and French Canadians who arrived in the 19th and 20th centuries. I offer a full range of services, from simple document retrieval for those who cannot travel to Rhode Island or find what they need by mail, to multi-generational family histories. I also offer photography of tombstones, ancestral homes, churches and places of employment. I regularly search all relevant church and civil records both in the U.S.A. and in the immigrants' country of origin, and travel frequently to RI and MA State Archives, NARA in Waltham, MA and Pittsfield, MA, RI City and Town Halls, Historical Society Libraries, and LDS Family History Centers. I belong to the Association of Professional Genealogists, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, the Italian Genealogical Society of America, the American French Genealogical Society and the Rhode Island Historical Society.

    When you hire a researcher you are creating a contract between you and the researcher. I cannot be held responsible for any actions, or nonactions, of the researcher's listed here. My placing them here does not give any guarantee by me that they are qualified, or that they can/will perform the work you request. If you have a major problem with one of the researcher's here you can email me and tell me of the problem, but my involvement will be limited to removing them from the list if I see fit.
