About Me

Please don't let the fact that I am only thirty-two 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 Cook and Will County records: vital records (birth, marriage, and death), naturalization records, probate records, cemeteries of the Joliet and Chicago 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 is amazing! Not only is he prompt in his responses and thorough in his research, but he goes the extra mile to provide as much information as possible related to the project. He is very knowledgeable and able to find data even when he is given very little to work with.I feel fortunate to have found him.

Steven was quite helpful in preparing my geneology. With minimum information he was able to deliver all the information I wanted in a short amount of time and it was presented in a professional manner. I would highly recommend his services.

    Cook County Probate File Packet

    $60.00/record

    Description

    This lookup is for the location of a probate file, and the copying of essential documents from the file. This may include a will, table of heirship, testimony of witnesses, inventory of the estate/bill of appraisement, and final accounting and distribution. The documents referenced above will be copied on the second trip, if they are present in the file.

    The locating of a probate file is a multi-step process. The first step is to examine the probate index for an entry for the individual. If an entry is found, it will be requested from storage. The transferring of the file can take seven to fourteen business day. Once the file arrives it will be examined, and the documents mentioned above will be reproduced. Once they are reproduced you will receive a PDF file containing all of the documents.

    If an entry is not found, you will only be responsible for the index search of $30. I will provide you with an image of the page(s) searched for an entry.

    Ordering Instructions

    Please provide the name of the deceased and date of death.

This was a great experience. Quick, professional and Steven was able to help me find the information I needed. Highly recommended. Don't waste your time and money using the pay-for-information public record sites. Hire a professional and get the answers you need quickly.

Needed to find an ancestor's LAST WILL to answer some questions to which nobody living had answers. Steven found it, and it answered everything -- and he did it much quicker than I thought possible. I'll use jolietgenealogy again!

Once again Steven was prompt in his responses and very diligent in his research. He continues to go above and beyond in providing information about the individuals being researched. I would highly recommend Steven to anyone needing genealogy help in the Chicago area.

Steven is amazing! Not only is he prompt in his responses and thorough in his research, but he goes the extra mile to provide as much information as possible related to the project. He is very knowledgeable and able to find data even when he is given very little to work with.I feel fortunate to have found him.

Steven was quite helpful in preparing my geneology. With minimum information he was able to deliver all the information I wanted in a short amount of time and it was presented in a professional manner. I would highly recommend his services.
