  1. Since you are a Kentucky expert (LOL), would you be willing to look up the parents of my great-grandmother? I have her name, birthdate, parent’s names, etc. from her death certificate. There are several families with the same name (Griffin) so I cannot be 100% sure who the correct parents are.

    I would of course pay for this – what is your rate?

    My email address is njstillings@hotmail.com.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.
