Just to clarify - as I see you've made this enquiry of other board members - I do research for $$ if approached directly.
BUT if I offer to assist someone thru' a board such as this, they get the benefit of my experience (especially in adoption research)without charge.
I prefer to work in two areas -
to assist overseas enquirers on the general boards (particularly with info that can't be accessed on-line, e.g. newspaper entries, etc),
and adoption enquiries - because these people are in a situation not of their own making and they usually don't have the research skills to make the necessary connections.
