I will organize your genealogical mess! or I will do a basic search; checking ancestry.com, census, ss death records, etc.
If you are just beginning the wonderful world of Genealogy I can guarantee you have papers here and there with notes about Aunt Gertrude or Uncle Fritz. You may or may not have added references...let hope so. Would you like your research organized? Would you like to begin with a clean slate with only the necessary items????? How about a notebook with dividers (now theres an idea) all set up with faternal and maternal ancestors. This can all be done on line. You email me what you have and I tell you how to set it up, where to buy the notebooks and which dividers to purchase. I recommend oversized notebooks because they hold sleeves which you can slide your paper in from the top and don't have to punch holes in that valuable birth certificate.

A PIECE OF AMERICAN HISTORY!
This journal was written 1833/1834 by David P. Reid who was aborad the Ship-of-the-Line Delaware. The journal is in remarkable condition.
"New York AugUst 12, 1833. Went on board the United States Ship of the Line Delaware, 74 Cap H.E. Ballard Commadore at New York while lying in the North River oposite the Battery August 12, 1833.

May 1st 1834 was the birth day of the King of France and the USS Delaware was at the port of Toulon France. There was much celebrating which the Delaware joined by offering a salute. Three of their guns proved to be "shotted" which caused the shot to go astray. One struck a French 74 about 3/4 of a mile away. Two men were killed and several injured.
