"Genealogy without documentation is mythology"
I only research actual documents at the Franklin County Court House and
information that can be verified. I have many years experience researching
and I have transcribed about 20 books from old records. References upon request.
Most research at the courthouse can be handled in 1-2 hours, depending on
the scope of the request and the records available.
I also have a file of the Franklin County records in the Archives in
Richmond that would be of interest to Franklin County researchers.
Research charge is the same.
