I am a genealogist with a degree in American History.  I understand how history and genealogy can collaborate to produce new historical knowledge.  Truthful, ethical, and  peer-reviewed genealogy primarily based on original records is an essential tool in any scholar's toolkit. As a Historical Genealogist my goal is to illustrate how professional genealogical research is a key historical discipline. I love stories about regular people engaged in life-changing historical events. 

My specialties include 

  • Colonial America & the Civil War 

  • Estates & Heir Searching

  • Lineage Societies
