Grandmother’s Secrets

Her photo has always had its place in a silver frame on the black grand piano in our home. She wears an organza silk blouse embroidered with roses and a mysterious winged creature. A cameo is pinned where the drape of the collar meets the button-down front.  She is elegant and beautiful as she looks down demurely towards left her hand, perhaps contemplating her wedding ring? Join me as we traverse the scant and conflicting data available on her life and the information we can pull from it.

 

 

 

 

 

Tales From the Life of a Professional Genealogist

Truth is often stranger than fiction. In this talk, I will present seven different stories collected during my time as a professional genealogist. One story is not true. Can you figure out which one it is? In each story, I will share with you information on genealogical research methods and resources. If you are not careful, you will learn something and may even get bitten by the genealogy bug!

 

 

 

 

 

What’s a Professional Genealogist?

Many people have never hired a professional genealogist. But the demand is increasing as more and more people find elusive family members in their own research or just need help getting started. Or maybe you would love to know your family history but just don’t have time to invest. In this talk I cover things you should consider before, during, and after hiring a professional genealogist.

  • Do I need one?
  • How do I find one?
  • What should I expect?

Relax! It’s easy and fun!
