Full-Time, Professional Genealogist and Writer Specializing in Pennsylvania and Surrounding States
I am an established historical and genealogical researcher and a published, professional writer. My bylines have appeared in national, regional, and local publications. Clips can be found on my web sites: StefHoover.com and PennsylvaniaResearch.com.
I provided research services to NBC's "Who Do You Think You Are?" and Canada's "Ancestors in the Attic" television program, and conducted archival research for a SyFy Channel special on the Kecksburg, PA UFO incident.
I was the first genealogist to work with the owners of Philadelphia's historic Greenwood Cemetery to evaluate the historical scope and significance of its burials in advance of a massive renovation project.
My research was recognized in a recent article in "North South Trader's Civil War," and I provided background for a biography on business magnate Charles J. Harrah.
In 2010 I was interviewed by the Harrisburg Patriot News for a "how to" article on genealogy research.
In 2009 I was invited to join Ancestry.com's ExpertConnect program where I provided genealogical research for family history clients around the world. At the closure of the program I enjoyed a 5-star rating.
I conduct on-site research in court houses, libraries and other repositories throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region and serve clients across the country and around the globe. Please visit PennsylvaniaResearch.com or 13ColonyGenealogy.com for complete details on my research services.
