Record or Photo Retrieval

You know exactly the record you need and the library or repository where it is located. I can go to find that record, print or photograph it, and send it to you via email or postal mail.

I can also photograph a particular gravestone or site related to your ancestors.

I am willing to travel anywhere within the New England area.

$30 per hour, including travel time

You will be billed at cost for any additional fees such as parking, tolls, mileage (beyond 15 miles), copies, postage, etc.
