About Me

Please don't let the fact that I am only thirty years old fool you. I began researching my family when I was seventeen years old. At the time I was a junior in high school, and discovered a hobby that few my age were interested in.

Since that time I have become very passionate about genealogy. I've taken the knowledge I have gained researching my own ancestors, and help others find out about their own ancestry.

Education/Training

I am a self taught genealogist, who has learned through researching my own family. I have fourteen years experience researching my own family, and eight years researching for others.

Research Services

I specialize in locating the following Will County records: vital records (birth, marriage, and death), naturalization records, probate records, cemeteries of the Joliet Catholic Diocese, & obituaries that appeared in Joliet newspapers. I currently live in Chicago to attend school; however, I will be available to travel to Joliet weekly to perform lookups. I am also available custom research projects, tailored to client's research goals.

I am also beginning to offer limited research requests in Kankakee and Kane Counties. Please contact me with additional questions regarding available records.

Steven was very helpful in my research request for naturalization records in trying to determine a city of origin for my great grandfather. He even wrote a helpful blog post to inform people about the information contained in naturalization records at different points in history. He was very upfront and honest, ensuring that I was certain about what kind of info may be (or may not be) available in the requested documentation. He was also generous in offering up information that may be of use to me for researching ancestors in the Will County, Illinois area. I will most likely use his services again in the never-ending quest to discover my long-lost family members.

Steven Wright is a master at what he does. For a number of years now, he has helped me uncover family and historical records I would have no idea how to find on my own. But his true brand comes from something far more important than even that: he is absorbed in the stories these records tell. With enthusiasm and spirit, Steven helps his clients piece together scraps and bits into the story of an ancestor's life. To me that's what distinguishes a true genealogist from a mere researcher.

Kate

Research Client


I hired Steven Wright to uncover information about not only family members but also individuals who previously owned the house I purchased last year. Steven traced ancestry, searched a multitude of records, assisted me with solving various research problems, and provided specific information I previously had difficulty finding. He performed research in a timely matter and for a reasonable fee while staying in contact and updating me as he worked. I was impressed by his vast knowledge of genealogy in general! I highly recommend Steven as he is professional, personable, and a diligent researcher. I plan to have him research my ancestors in the near future. Thank you!

Amanda-Rose Hicks-Barnhardt

Research Client


I've known Steven for many years and he has done Genealogy research for my family. He's one of the most hard working, detailed-oriented, curious, persistent, and fair people that I know. I highly recommend him.

Steven did a great job in locating and photographing a divorce file. He provided regular updates on the status of the project.

Steven was very helpful in my research request for naturalization records in trying to determine a city of origin for my great grandfather. He even wrote a helpful blog post to inform people about the information contained in naturalization records at different points in history. He was very upfront and honest, ensuring that I was certain about what kind of info may be (or may not be) available in the requested documentation. He was also generous in offering up information that may be of use to me for researching ancestors in the Will County, Illinois area. I will most likely use his services again in the never-ending quest to discover my long-lost family members.

Steven Wright is a master at what he does. For a number of years now, he has helped me uncover family and historical records I would have no idea how to find on my own. But his true brand comes from something far more important than even that: he is absorbed in the stories these records tell. With enthusiasm and spirit, Steven helps his clients piece together scraps and bits into the story of an ancestor's life. To me that's what distinguishes a true genealogist from a mere researcher.

I hired Steven Wright to uncover information about not only family members but also individuals who previously owned the house I purchased last year. Steven traced ancestry, searched a multitude of records, assisted me with solving various research problems, and provided specific information I previously had difficulty finding. He performed research in a timely matter and for a reasonable fee while staying in contact and updating me as he worked. I was impressed by his vast knowledge of genealogy in general! I highly recommend Steven as he is professional, personable, and a diligent researcher. I plan to have him research my ancestors in the near future. Thank you!

I've known Steven for many years and he has done Genealogy research for my family. He's one of the most hard working, detailed-oriented, curious, persistent, and fair people that I know. I highly recommend him.
