Can help with family histories listed in the Allen Co. Public Library Genealogy Catalog (ACPL). If there is a listing for a book, provide me with a list of titles/call numbers, family surname(s), and what family information you're looking for. (Also check the availability of ACPL microtext records (microfilm and microfiche).)
The ACPL is the foremost repository for city directories. I can research hard cover city directories found in the ACPL Genealogy Catalog or microfiche and microfilm city directories found in the ACPL microtext catalog. (Please specify city, date range needed, and person(s) of interest.)
Note: I do not live in Massachusetts ... I live in Allen Co., IN.
I can do some volunteer work in Essex County Massachusetts, mostly in Lynn, Salem, Peabody, Danvers. I can take pictures in cemeteries. I don't know if I can be of any other help, but I do use Ancestry.com, familysearch.org, fold3, americanancestors.org
