Knowing our family history gives us an understanding of those who came before us and, more importantly, a sense of who we are as individuals. I am a professional genealogist, who provides research, writing, editing, and graphic design services to help clients discover and share their family history. An award-winning author, I also educate others on genealogy research techniques and methods by writing articles, guides, and course materials. I currently serve as the managing editor for FORUM, a quarterly magazine of the Federation of Genealogical Societies.
