  1. Hello,
    My name is Sherry Ramsey, and I am researching my family history. My grandmother, Melissa May Spears (Smit) maiden Name, was in Mt. Veron Sanatorium in 1948. She gave birth to a daughter Elizabeth Spears who died at birth on 02 Nov 1948. How would I go about getting those records?'
    Thank you for your help in this matter.
    P.S, if there is a charge for this research, just let me know, I would be very happy to pay it.
    Sherry Ramsey

  2. Most often, the answer is yes there's documentation. However, most was not centralized resulting in each case being individualized as a research project. Individual facility records may be found at the county, local or state archives. Many of these facilities changed hands, so that too must be researched while seeking out documents. That can be uncovered, sometimes, through newspaper search. This is typically a 10 hour search for a3Genealogy Research. If you need our assistance, just reach out via email or call.

  3. My name is Carol Fields. My Grandmother's name was Elizabeth Harding. She always said that she was related to Warren G. Harding but not how. When I look at his photo and if he had a ladies wig on that would be my Grandmother. How do I look at Warren's or his Father's complete family tree? I find only limited info. I have done my DNA at Ancestry. What can I do using those results.
    Thank you
