Genealogical Background:

My love of genealogy began as a child listening to the tales told by my grandparents and great-aunts and great-uncles. I began researching my family history almost 30 years ago.

I began taking paying clients in 2008 and began my quest for more genealogical methodology knowledge that same year.
