DONATIONS ACCEPTED WITH GRATITUDE!
DONATIONS ARE MOST APPRECIATED! GRAZIE MILLE! Hello! I created this ancestral urban history blog, way back in 2008. At one point or another, I thought about adding a donation button, but felt indifferent about asking for money from my readership. At this point in time, after 12 years of keeping the memories “alive and ticking”, I decided to ask for donations! 🙂 I intend to upgrade this site, by adding more storage space, in order to upload audio,video, more photos, etc. I’d also like to do a video podcast, and to finally scan all of the ephemera/memorabilia/vintage photos, that I have been collecting for over 15 years! I look forward to the journey! Thanks so much for your donation! I really appreciate it! Best regards, Angela 🙂
FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCH PROJECTS- ITALY & NYC
If you are in need of assistance with your family history research, you have found the right person! I have been a freelance historian/researcher for over 20 years! I charge a flat fee for Italian vital records, census records, WWI & WWII registration cards, marriage records, baptismal records, death records, nyc property records, immigration records, ship manifests, etc. You will receive a high resolution printout of each record. My basic fee is $30, plus $5 shipping, per each record found. If I have to travel to NYC to retrieve a particular record, we would discuss how much I would charge for a custom research trip to NYC.
ITALIAN VITAL RECORDS-RESEARCH
If you are interested in finding historical vital records, from your ancestors who once lived in Italy, I can help! Upon finding your ancestral records, I will email you a high definition record, and translate what the record says, from Italian to English. If you wish to receive a hard copy, I can mail you one as well, for an extra $5 shipping fee, which you can pay me at a later date. MY research and translation fee is $40 per record.
PHOTO SCANNING-PRESERVATION & DIGITIZATION SERVICES
Have tons of photos that you’ve been planning to have scanned and preserved? I can help with that! I have a professional grade, high definition scanner. I can scan your vintage photos, and email them to you in a jpeg file. Just mail your photos to me. (I will send you my address upon receipt of payment.) Once they are scanned, I will mail them back to you. If you prefer to have the digital files on a thumb drive, I can do that, for an extra cost. (depends on the type and size of thumb drive.) Cost per each photo scan is $10. If you need me to edit/enhance the photos, there will be an extra cost. Let me know via email what your preferences are.
