    Try your state historical society, or universities.

    You might contact a quilt appraiser in your area, see if they can either date the quilt for you or give you a referral to someone who can.

    Do you belong to a quilt guild? People in the guild I am in do quilt documentation every year. Maybe you could ask around and someone there will know where or who to send you to.
