In order to facilitate quick and thorough access of our entire genealogical and historical record collections (those online, as well as, those archived ‘off-line’), ManyRoads’ now offers a Service to conduct and provide research results to our clients. A full description of our new research offering is available via Download. For those who may be familiar, our new search service is modeled directly after a similar service offered by The Allen County (IN) Libraries.
To be clear, this is not intended to be private family research but rather an information look-up for you, our readers, on a specific topic or individual. If you are seeking bespoke family history, genealogy research, or other professional genealogical services, please visit our Services page to review our offerings.
