Brunswick Area Property Research

Property research is conducted for many reasons. James’ property research traces the property back to its raw land grant and provides you the names of previous owners and any interesting facts contained in deeds. When you engage James for a property research project your final product is a hard copy report presenting his findings. Interested in researching a Frederick County, Maryland property? Fill out this FORM and James will get in contact with you to establish a timeline for the project.

GENEAOLOGY

Genealogy has become a very popular subject. Many begin the process of tracing their family history but then quit when they realize the time commitment needed to perform this research. Why not have James do this work for you? The finished product is a hard copy report presenting his findings regarding your request. Fill out this FORM and James will get in contact with you to establish a timeline for the project.
