As a historical researcher, author and professional genealogist, I provide a variety of research services, including family history research; local, state and regional history research; book research services and photography related to architecture and genealogy. I provide assistance to beginners as well as consultations and advice to those who may wish to conduct their own research, but may have questions or problems in obtaining information. I also do complete family history research for those individuals who are interested in researching and recording their family history, but do not have the time or expertise. It's never too late to start your family tree research. My services are professional, personalized, and affordable. My research expertise includes both Jewish and non-Jewish research.

I am a professional history researcher with over nineteen years of experience in many areas of the USA and Eastern and Central Europe. I have authored five books on history, synagogue architecture and Jewish genealogy and have a comprehensive background in history research and archives administration. In addition, I index and photograph cemeteries, am involved in projects to photograph and document American synagogue architecture and history. I offer consultations and advice for creating, organizing and maintaining community, organizational and church and synagogue archives. My current research and book projects include The Synagogues of Central & Western Pennsylvania: A Visual Journey that has recently been published by Fonthill Media as well as eBooks on the subjects of Ohio synagogues, pioneer American Jewish congregations and Holocaust memorials and museums in North America. If you would like to know more about these projects, please contact me. Signed copies of my newest book are now available.
