Discover Family History
I am a professional genealogist with over twenty years of experience.  Based in Nebraska, I have done projects for private clients in everything from finding heirs, establishing lineages for lineage societies, combing German church records, and solving a wide range of genealogical mysteries. I also date and identify photographs and I love to teach and inspire through meetings and seminars. In addition to articles in the New England Historical Genealogical Register and The Genealogist, I am a regular contributor to Family Chronicle and Internet Genealogy magazines.
