“Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.”
Zora Neale Hurston
Footlight Research specializes in thorough historical research.
Writing a house history to commemorate its hundred years of existence, finding location or family information for memoirs or historical fiction, or transcribing oral interviews and histories are some of the ways Footlight Research has helped clients in places as diverse as New Jersey, Florida, Illinois, Wisconsin, and England.
Historical consultants have been described as experts who "swoop in to take over the tricky work of researching history." As a historical consultant and storyteller, I will provide the material and the clearly written details that serve as a footlight to illuminate your historical project needs.
Do you have a story that needs researching or telling? Contact me today for a free initial consultation.
