Types of Lookups
Online Sources, State / Local Society, Vital Records
Dane & Milwaukee Counties, etc.
Brief Directory Description
I can look up obituaries for Dane & Milwaukee counties via online sites. Also have access to the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison during certain times of the year, which means I could access Dane Co. probate files for you, as well as pre-1907 vital records for all counties of Wisconsin. Can provide general research assistance for the area. Contact me for more info.
Volunteer Research Description

I have been researching and helping others research for over 10 years. I was a member of the original RAOGK from about 2006 until it was disbanded, and since that time have volunteered my time on other genealogy help sites. I have a deep background of researching in the Dane County area. See below for a brief description of things I can help you with:

Any time of the year: Can look up obituaries in Dane and Milwaukee county newspapers that I have online access to, 1920-present (earlier years have less chance of finding an obit).

Certain times per year (since I live in Georgia, but make frequent trips back to Wisconsin): Can visit the Wisconsin Historical Society and obtain copies of birth, marriage and death records from the pre-1907 records which are stored there on microfilm. Can also look up probate records for DANE COUNTY ONLY.

You would just reimburse for cost of paper copies. This can be discussed at the time of your inquiry.

If making a pre-1907 record request, please look through the Wisconsin Pre-1907 Vital Records Index (http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/Content.aspx?dsNav=N:1161) first to determine that there is actually a record for the person you are looking for. It is important to note that registered birth, marriage, and death records were not required until late 1907, so even if your relative had a vital event occur in Wisconsin, there may not actually be a record of it at the state level. If that is the case I'd recommend looking for church records.

Jade was awesome in finding a record that I needed. She acknowledged me right away and told me she would be working on it as soon as possible. That was the key in knowing that someone is going to follow through with a request. She sent me the information within a few days. I know I am going to request her again in the future without any hesitation.
