We work with a vast and ever-growing array of repository and online documentation and resources, as well as resources that we own. The focus leads from the 19th into the 21st century.

We research where the trail leads, whether at the federal, state, county, or municipal level, or in libraries, private collections, or online.

Through associates in other parts of the United States and abroad, who are experts in their own localities, research capabilities are worldwide.
