Jill has a great knowledge of the sources that are available to investigate the history of property. She also cross-referenced news stories for me and came up with stories about some really interesting occupants, and in one case she found a news paper article announcing the construction of my property 95 years ago! Jill is great to work with, knowledgeable and fairly priced: I would recommend her service to anyone.
Our neighborhood association wanted to add something special for guests who came to our 2017 Home Tour. Jill's research provided us with some great history and fun facts to share with our guests and added the extra character that we were looking for to highlight the long and interesting story of our neighborhood. Her services were professional and prompt and we were grateful to be able to provide both our guests and our home owners with a little bit of history! Thanks Jill!

We contracted with Jill to do a "house history" on our 1891 Victorian house and our recently purchased 1910 carriage house which had been separated from the main house in 1947. She did an outstanding job of tracking down the former owners of our house going back to the couple who built it. She also found some of the the history of the carriage house and the names of the renters after it became a separate house. Included were maps of the area showing how the neighborhood was platted and interesting articles and obituaries about some of the former owners of the property. The price was very reasonable considering the hours she spent doing research that would have been much more difficult and time consuming for us to do ourselves. We now have the information that we wanted about our house. We received the information in a timely manner and considered it a job well done! Thanks, Jill!

We wanted to submit an application for the National Register for several years, but we didn’t know where to start and could never seem to find the time. Jill made it easy. She handled all of the details, and her knowledge about older homes and her past experience with the application process were invaluable.

Jill took care of this project with absolutely no time or effort required from us! We are so thrilled to have our home on the National Register as a result of her outstanding work!
