Behind every item is a story waiting to be told. Need help identifying a piece from your collection or learning more about a veteran? Use the form provided to request a quote. If I am unsuccessful in finding any information, there is no charge - if I can procure useful information I typically ask $35 per hour, though this can be less based on the ask and actual time taken. Sometimes the best details are in the most unlikely of sources.
Please include as much information as you can and mention if you have photos. I will reply promptly and keep you updated throughout the research process.
