Ellen Gammon

I am retired and have been doing my family’s genealogy for 17 years. I thoroughly enjoy helping other fellow genealogists find their families. I have been doing research for hire for 15 years.

Some of the money I receive for researching is donated back into the local library’s genealogy department and the Lawrence Register. I have volunteered for The Lawrence Register and typed the death indexes, indexed the 1930 Lawrence Co., OH census, and indexed the brides from marriage books 4 and 5.
I do research mainly in Lawrence Co., OH but will travel to Scioto Co., OH if necessary.

My charges are very reasonable, and I only charge $8.00 for one lookup. For other research, the charge is a $30.00 minimum (or $35.00 minimum for Scioto Co. research) which includes two hours’ research and up to five copies of birth or death records (1868 to 1938), marriage records, obits, census pages, cemetery records, etc. Copies and postage are included.

(Wills may cost a little more, as they are usually several pages). I can now accept payments through PAYPAL for an extra $1.00.
