Professional Researchers

These professionals provide research assistance for a fee. While the majority specialize in genealogy, some conduct various types of historical investigation, and a few reach beyond these two areas to other kinds of research.

This list is provided as a service to those who need assistance. Researchers listed have no formal connection with IHS and we assume no responsibility for the quality or accuracy of the work they perform. All arrangements and communications must be made directly with the researchers to determine charges, fees and services. If you write, please enclose a stamped envelope to ensure a reply.
