In the summer of 2003, I launched ChicagoGenealogy.com as an experiment. I wanted to see if I could earn part-time income doing something I enjoyed—finding Chicago records. The answer was a resounding yes, and over twelve years' time, I retrieved thousands of vital records to help researchers across the world learn more about their Chicago ancestors. The website was a satisfying success.
But, as they say, all good things must come to an end, and in 2015, my husband's work prompted a cross-country move. I could no longer visit Chicago repositories. What was I going to do with a website that had become a go-to place for Cook County research help?
I decided to turn it into a co-op for Chicago research. I continue to maintain the pages, but I no longer offer research services myself. Instead, I refer clients to other Chicago researchers I've come to know and trust.
You will find links to these researchers' Genlighten.com pages throughout the site. Genlighten.com? It's a marketplace for genealogy research services that my husband and I co-founded and it actually grew out of my ChicagoGenealogy experience. If you're not familiar with it, check it out!
I hope the pages you find on this site provide the information you need to see success in your Chicago research.
Thanks for stopping by!
