Please Note

  • Please place your requests in writing.
  • I cannot guarantee I will find what you need as in some cases there simply are no records and at times records are lost or destroyed. Even original documents can contain inaccurate information. Therefore, it is important to indicate how you wish to proceed should these unlikely eventualities occur in order to avoid a misunderstanding over fees.
  • I do require payment in advance and will send your invoice and a detailed follow-up report along with the researched documents I have found.
