Need a Researcher?



Are you in need of historical research of people, places, businesses, buildings, or historical events? I may be able to help.

Whether you need me to do something relatively simple like finding the address of your great-grandfather, or something more involved like searching through archived newspapers for details on a local trial — I can probably help.

My base rate for non-corporate projects is $45/hour; for corporate projects, the rate depends on the project (please inquire). For very simple tasks which require a minimal amount of time and research, fees can be as low as $10.

I have been doing intensive research on various Dallas history subjects since 2014 and have written well over 1,000 Flashback Dallas posts, many of which required a great deal of research. I have also done research work for SMU’s Hamon Library, the Dallas Historical Society, and Preservation Dallas.

In addition to the large number of local resources which I consult daily in my ongoing Dallas history research, I also have access to:

  • Newspaper archives
  • Telephone directories
  • Genealogical information
  • U.S. Census records
  • Texas death certificates
  • High school and college yearbooks

Please contact me with your inquiries:

Thank you!
