A Professional Genealogist Can Help
We all have them – our very own unique
family trees. Finding them, now that’s the challenging
part! With a bit of detective work, many of our ancestors can
be found residing amongst the most fascinating of branches.
Their lives begin to unfold as we discover them in land
records, census records, birth, marriage and death records,
county histories, etc. Their story becomes our story and our
lives take on more meaning because of them. Our roots grow
deeper and deeper and we soon learn that we can weather just
about anything because we have ancestors who did too!
But where do we start? Do you imagine yourself
having to spend hours and hours squinting at roll after roll of
microfilm, pouring over dusty volumes in the library, and
endlessly copying charts and group sheets? That’s where I
can help. My dedication to family history work goes back more
than 20 years. I love the work! There is nothing more rewarding
than bringing to life those elusive ancestors.
