Ray Palmer Research

W. Raymond Palmer, Ph.D

Specializing in on-site historical and genealogical research in eastern New York State and western New England.  I have nearly 15 years of experience navigating libraries and archives and am able to complete projects with optimal efficiency.  Whether you require simple record searching or in-depth research I can help.  I am able to conduct genealogical research at the Berkshire Athenaeum in Pittsfield, Ma.  This repository has significant holdings in Berkshire County, Massachusetts as well as New England in general.  The New York State Archives as well as local historical societies in eastern New York State are also accessible to me.  I am also willing to photograph headstones in area cemeteries.  Vital records, Probate records, Land records, Passenger Lists, Census records, and some Military records are at my disposal.  

I also conduct simple and in-depth historical research projects at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library.  I am familiar with many of the collections held there.
