Do you want free access to a professional researcher from a qualified source?
I’m a librarian, archivist, and historical fiction author. I started my career before online searching was possible. Now, I can’t imagine a world without it.
There’s so much out there and it’s free.
I developed this course to help fellow historic fiction authors and memoirist to get the research we need and stop going down research rabbit holes and get back to writing!
Who has Dorothea helped?
Here I am with Ruth Cope in 2004. Ruth was one of the original women radar trackers during World War 2. Ruth and I worked on a novel about the first six months of the war in Hawaii.
Hilary Clinton wrote in her book THE BOOK OF GUTSTY WOMEN:
Take the women on the cover this book . . . civilian firefighters during a training exercise at Pearl Harbor, circa 1941 . . . Seventy years after the photograph was taken, the public learned who the women were. . . librarian and author, Dorothea Buckingham, identified it as from the Hawaii War Records Depository.
MSNBC has called me for quick fact-checks, and I’ve sat on the floor with third graders teaching them how to fact-check.
Dr. Robert Cutler, author of THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF JANE STANFORD wrote:
“I am in debt to Dorothea ‘Dee’ Buckingham who researched primary documents and information about the mysterious death of Jane Stanford which were unavailable to me. She worked with such tenacity, you’d think she was the author.
She became so knowledgeable about Mrs. Stanford’s death that she wrote a marvelously entertaining fictionalized account that suggested all the things my non-fiction work could not.
