I have been a professional writer since 1979, a genealogist since 1999, a professional genealogist since 2009, and a Board-certified professional genealogist since 1 June 2012. Use the “Contact Harold” box to get in touch.
I hope this site will help your genealogy quest in at least one of the following ways:
(1) Use free resources here, including
- a selection of free lookups,
- a list of some Family History microfilms already in the Midwest,
- a list of state and regional genealogy periodicals nationwide,
- lists of the above-average holdings of Midwestern city directories in Valparaiso and Indiana newspapers in Mishawaka, and
- my finding aids for small-city city directory microfilm reels from Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan.
(2) Hire writing or citation help. Do you have a written proof argument or other article and you’re not sure whether it’s ready to submit for publication? I can critique or edit your draft. Or I can focus on bringing your source citations closer to Evidence Explained standards.
(3) Find a useful blog post at midwesternmicrohistory.blogspot.com.
