Researchers Available For Hire

From time to time, I may receive information from people offering to do research for others. I would like to pass that information along on this web site in the hopes that it may be helpful to other researchers who might need help from someone who actually lives in the Azores and has easier access to many of the records.

**** I am not necessarily making a recommendation that anyone listed on this site do research for you. The people listed here as researchers have simply contacted me and asked that an ad for their services be included on this web site.

A report is provided at the end of each block of research along with an assessment of the prospects for further research. I do not string people along. If further research is unlikely to produce any further genealogical information, or is likely to be expensive, I let the client know. Both parties are free to end the project at any time.

I do not print out or supply documents but will footnote exactly where the information comes from. 

I will correct any factual error at no charge to the client. Emal me at
