Independent researcher available for hire in the red area shown above

I will be happy to be your independent researcher for hire. As freelance researcher, I will research or simply document the files and get them back to you.

If you have an archives, library, courthouse, or special collection, in eastern Washington, northern Idaho, or northeastern Oregon, then I can likely help you find the document or photo graph that you are looking for regardless if it is listed below or not.

If you need an oversized or fragile book, letter, or object photographed, I have the equipment to shoot those oversize objects.

Here is just a sample of the archives within in my home range:
