Research Success Stories

Thank you so much for your dedication and quick service! My family is forever grateful you helped us find my grandmother’s family.

Many thanks for the amazing response to my request for information about Edward F. Zinns and his Milwaukee Graphite Company. For a quarter-century I was Head of Reference at the State Archives of Michigan, so I know good public service when I see it. Thanks for monitoring your business email after-hours. Given the caliber of the service you provide, I am not surprised. Your outstanding work on my behalf needs to be rewarded, and I would like to show my gratitude with a donation to your institution.
