About Me

I enjoy working with families to help them find their connections to the past. Each research request provides the opportunity to uncover the lives of our ancestors and, many times, to understand why they made the choices that they did. Their stories matter!

Education/Training

I have been conducting genealogical research since 1980 and have extensive experience using the Norwegian DigitalArkivet, Swedish ArkivDigital, and Danish Arkivalieronline in researching Scandinavian family histories.

With my move to Northwest Indiana 12 years ago, I am now in a position to conduct research for both Lake and Porter Counties in Northwest Indiana and I am a member of the Northwest Indiana Genealogical Association. Many Chicagoans crossed the state line for marriages in Lake County, Indiana in the early 1900s and these documents can provide valuable information to researchers.

Research Services

Whether you are looking for one document to verify a birth, marriage, immigration, or death or you are looking to research a particular line in your family history, I would be more than happy to help you find the information that you are looking for in your research.

Just recently, I have started working with Genetic Genealogy and identifying relationships and connections through the use of DNA results and traditional genealogical research.

    Swedish Household Examination (Husförhör/Församlingsboken) Records

    $12.00/record

    Description

    Parish priests kept church book records of all individuals living in their parish (Husförhörs). These are valuable records to any Swedish genealogy as they provide the names of all individuals living in the household, year/date of birth, and in many cases, the place of birth. If individuals died or moved out of the parish during the examination year, dates were often noted in the records.

    The fixed fee option is for individuals who already know the name, parish, and county of residence.

    Ordering Instructions

    Please provide the individual’s name, date of birth, parish, and county. Dates of household examination records vary by parish. If records are not available for the time period requested, you will be informed.

    One Branch (One Surname) Research

    $500.00/record

    Description

    The “One Surname” project will research one surname (paternal or maternal) in your family tree. A 10-hour retainer ($250.00) is required to commence the project. Project binder (see below) will be shipped when full payment is received, upon completion of the project.

    Your research fee includes 20 hours of research ($500.00), a project report, a descendancy report, ancestral tree, and family group sheets for the individuals researched.

    Additional Fees :
    Vital Records: For those in the United States, research into Scandinavian genealogy begins right here in the United States. In such cases, it may be necessary to acquire vital records from the city or state. These documents are available only through special requests to the city or state where the event occurred and require a fee. When these documents are necessary to further research, the client is responsible for the additional fees incurred. No documents will be ordered without prior approval from the client. Fees will vary.

    Shipping: Upon completion of your project, a tabulated binder with all documents, reports, and charts will be mailed via USPS media mail. For an additional fee, clients may request shipping via Priority Mail, UPS, or FedEx.

    Ordering Instructions

    Please provide all information you have for the initial ancestor and state the question(s) you would like answered. Are you looking for an answer to a specific question or merely seeking to uncover your ancestry?
