Biography: I long ago learned that my family tree was only the start. The greater joy is in finding other personal records that “bring people to life.”
I love to assist others find their family members and their recorded history, however large or small. In addition to researching the past, I regularly find living relatives, which can lead to lovely family reunions.
My professional background of 40 years in nursing was people-oriented. This gives me extra insights into illness, cause of death and other matters. I have concentrated on genealogy for some years.
Clients are often surprised and happy with their family records, wherever that went, and they then feel they know where they came from. Often they also receive fascinating and previously unheard of tales of their family’s past lifestyle and circumstances.
