We here at Idahistory love archives, whether present among the stacks of collected materials, or working online with digitized archival materials, we love research. We have researched chains of ownership for property owners, investigated the histories of various businesses that once existed on specific parcels of land, and studied the history of the Boise River and its impact on the development of the Boise Valley for area schools. Jeff and I write everyday, and have created school curriculums and written various articles, website content, publications, and more. If you have historical inquiries, our dogged practices will produce results.
Praise from Idahistory Customers:
Erica Hermsen - Director of Everwild Forest School:
"Idahistory created an in-depth and developmentally appropriate local history unit for our students, with a focus on the anthropological use of the Boise River - from traditional Native American societies through the Industrial Revolution and modern age. EverWild Forest School students now have the unique opportunity to learn about their local and natural communities through direct engagement and historically accurate education programming."
Leslie Johnson - Property Research
"I met with Mark of Idahistory, after seeing his information on Instagram about researching the history of homes in the Boise area. I was intrigued at the thought of all the people and their lives that lived in my home since 1936. He delivered on his promises and gave me the chain of title of previous owners as well as a wonderful history lesson of my home and the local history of the area. Idahistory's research service is well worth the money and you may be surprised at what he is able to find. I would reccomend his service to all. Thank you!"
Tammy Gusman - Genealogy Customer:
"Had these guys research family info and about the house my Dad grew up in. And the history on the house my husband and I own. Great info much of the family info I did not know. Well worth the cost!!!"
