Tools for Breaking Down that Brickwall

Have you reached a brick wall in your genealogy research? Do you need a little help locating an ancestor or record? Sometimes all it takes is a fresh set of eyes or a different approach at researching to start to crack that brick wall or set you on the path to finding your relative!
 
Maybe a PGSM volunteer researcher can help! We cannot promise we will find the person or records you seek, but we will do our best to help.
 
To request assistance:  Click on Research Request in the left column, then complete and submit the form. Your request will be assigned to a volunteer researcher. If needed, the researcher will contact you for more information while researching your request.. Otherwise, we will get back with you as soon as we can with the results of our research efforts.
