Digital research, NYC sources, $25/hour
Typically in digital sources but also, once in a while, for the odd fact in an outside source - the wording on a deed at the Hall of Records, a DoB signoff at the Municipal Archives, the odd directory at NYHS or NYPL. Existing expertise in 19th and early 20th century serials, newspapers, censuses, etc. is necessary.
Sunny west side office on the #1 train, but it is rarely necessary to be on-premises.
1) put your cover letter/CV directly into the text of the email (don't
worry, I know the result may be scrambled)
2) tell me how long you have been in NYC, where you live now, and your software abilities.
3) please also tell me something about the digital research sources with which you have already worked: newspapers, serials, genealogy. Plus any institutional affiliations with library privileges (e. g., Columbia graduate).
WordPerfect competence a plus. If anyone actually knows what WordPerfect is anymore.
Please respond through this ad to Doelger440@aol.com, not directly to me at my office. This is simply to manage the responses.
