Historical Research

Biographical Report

When you operate a farm that has passed through 10 generations of the same family since the administration of George Washington, you can't help but have a knack for all things historical.  As such, we have decided to offer to others some of the skills that have been honed while understanding how Smith Farm has become what it is today.

If you would like to know the details concerning the life of your nearly-forgotten grandma, an almost-mystical uncle, or some other intriguing ancestor, this product may be for you.

For a limited time, we are offering our services to compile a biographical research report of an individual person.  Research into this individual will attempt to determine date and location of birth, location of residence in each of the decennial US Censuses, and date and location of death.  If the person was married, this information will be included if found.  Also, research will be done to try and identify the parents and children of this individual.

As an add-on service, at the same time, persons may request that we research the spouse of the individual.  Additional information that may be included would be the parents of the spouse and the location of residence prior to marriage.

The individual report will include up to three hours of research, plus an illustrated biographical report delivered electronically.  The individual with spouse report will include up to three hours of research, plus an illustrated biographical report delivered electronically.  Printed copies of the reports can be delivered for an additional fee.  If you would like to see samples of each report, please view them here.  The cost for an individual report is $75, while the report with spouse is $100. 

We are currently limiting requests to Pennsylvania only. Individuals who lived between 1790 and 1940 will yield the best results.
