- I would be glad to help you get started on your Family History, regardless of origin. I've been at it for 80 years, with families from Canada, England, Ireland, Germany. Portugal and Spain.
- I can help particularly with Cape Cod history, to get the background setting of your family, their occupations and houses.
- I can help people identify local library holdings and Interlibrary Loan possibilities via Massachusetts Virtual Catalog which should get better this summer and the WorldCat. I can identify books and materials at the BPL and Histgen.
- I do read and write German. I am really challenged with Sütterlin script, but I do read Fraktur as well as, of course, modern German in Roman type. There are people who have been able to master Sütterlin in the German SIG, but I think they do not have German. If they can transliterate to Roman letters, I can probably translate if the transliteration is correct.
- I do personally have subscriptions to Ancestry and American Ancestors and can help there. There are more proficient people for Family Search and Rootsweb probably.
- Research in upstate New York, PA, NJ, MI, OH, IN, IL, and some Other States
- Family Newsletter Editing
- I can help with the web site Ancestry and Genealogy Bank
- I can help you with your Swedish research.
