Welcome
"In the past... Ancestral and Historical Research" specializes in family history and genealogy research in the Midwest area of the United States.  
Discovering one's family heritage can be a rewarding experience, but at times it can become frustrating.  This is where "In the Past" can assist you.

Depending on your needs, I can assist you with:
  • Conducting research for you
  • Advising you as you do your own research
  • Family history consulting: Starting your family history research, or help to get past a roadblock
  • Compiling your research into a book, CD,  etc.   
                        
I use a large range of tools when conducting research for an individual.  Record types of all kinds including vital, census, military service and pension records, land and court records, newspapers, and city directories are utilized.  However, I like to think "outside the box" and use other sources that are sometimes overlooked.
