I document historical records of those who have come before. My service is completely voluntary, to aid future folks like me. My goal is to compile--with the highest accuracy--all available information by using primary sources whenever possible. When I find new documents, I contribute them. When I find errors, I make every attempt to correct them, while abiding by privacy guidelines. Many families I research are not related to me.
RESEARCH AREAS OF FOCUS:
-Surnames Gillen, Beeching, Benward, Kwasny
-New England, North-Mid Atlantic, Indiana, Kentucky
-UK, Eastern Europe
-Friends and extended family
-Any marginalized groups (LGBTQ+ and other minorities)
-Individuals in the arts, especially eccentrics
-People who are childless
From time to time I may ask a fellow researcher if he or she would be willing to transfer management of a particular memorial as follows: I am conducting dedicated historical academic research on this family and would be much appreciative if you are agreeable to transferring management to me. Thank you for your consideration.
