  • I had emailed Terri with a request for research in Chicago and she responded back with a very detailed form on what the process would be. I found Terri to be very thorough as she took on the research and provided the items I had asked for, plus she provided some extra items and answers to my questions. I would recommend Terri O’Connell for your research!
