Let me be your feet on the ground in New York City running “errands” to local repositories.
Call me if you need documents from New York City courts, archives, museums and libraries.
No job too small, no task too mundane.
Self-taught as a genealogist, I am re-directing my innate, lifelong skills at organizing content and managing projects to a new field which has entranced me—genealogy.
I am a terrier at tracking down details and at documenting my sources. Your citations will be complete and correct.
As a graphic designer, I promise my reports will be attractively typeset and generously illustrated.
For example, here is how I turned two pages of skimpy family information on an artist ancestor into an 80-page (and still counting) website, which I wrote and designed: donatusbuongiorno.com.
No accident, the speciality of my 30-year graphic design career has been producing marketing materials for regulated industries (finance, healthcare, insurance), which require you to:
- Keep all the arcane details of a project straight in your mind over years of implementing.
- Make sure you don’t inadvertently change a single letter of the text the lawyers have already approved.
- Not add extraneous information that might get you sued.
- Remember why you made decisions when queried years later.
Sound familiar? Genealogy research uses the same skills.
