Services


Ab Initio Archives Research, LLC can handle a broad variety of general historical research requests dealing with different times, places and people(s). In addition to my general research focus, I additionally have a number of research specialties that you can view using the Services dropdown menu above. 

My expertise includes research in virtually every records media that there is: documents; microfilm; electronic databases; maps and charts; drawings, posters and prints; photographs, transparencies, slides and negatives; aerial photographs and negatives; newspapers, magazines, books and diaries; architectural drawings and ship plans. You name it, I can find it, if it still exists. 

I am also willing and able to go anywhere in the world in pursuit of your research needs. I have in fact done my work in archives, museums, libraries and private collections throughout the United States and in Europe and the Middle East, a fuller list of which you will find on the Research Institutions I’ve Used page under Services. 

In addition to historical research, I offer a number of editorial services that you can see under the Services menu.
