Family History Research

Where Will Your Story Take You?

Researching your ancestors' story honors the lives they once led and brings to light your own entirely unique story.

Methodically identifying individuals in your family using all available resources, and all of my knowledge and skill, will reveal the facts as they were documented throughout a lifetime.  Accurately placing those facts within historical context will reveal the significance of the matter, ultimately bringing the forgotten stories of your ancestors back to life. ​
