Have you come face to face with a brick wall in your research? Maybe you have hard-to-read documents, or maybe they’re in a foreign language and you’re having a tough time deciphering and translating them. Maybe the European geographical names found in your research have changed throughout history and are confusing. Or maybe you have found a document you need and are wondering where the records might be kept today. We would be happy to help you.

Consultation is a service we offer for small and precise details in your research. (If you’re looking at something that is—or becomes—a larger research project, check out our “Solving Problems” service.) Depending on the kind of problem, we can provide you with a transcript or excerpt of the document and a faithful translation. We can locate the places and collections you need, assist you in accessing foreign-language databases and archives, or suggest to you specialty webpages and books that would be helpful in your research.
