I hold a Certified Genealogist credential and have over ten years of education and experience researching family history and genetic genealogy. I specialize in combining traditional family history research and genetic genealogy to uncover family connections.
Geographically I focus on New England, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Wisconsin research, effectively using both on-line and off-line repositories. My research experience spans locating records in local court houses, state historical societies all the way to the National Archives. Identifying the appropriate records, and where and how to access them is key to my ability to conduct quality, efficient client research.
I am adept at using genetic genealogy to break down brick-wall ancestors, as well as, to locate birth parents for adoptees.
I am currently and educator with the Boston University Genealogical Research Program, a mentor for GenProof study groups and a frequent speaker as genealogical societies.
