Bio

Hi!

I live in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. I have been a collector of antiques and an avid genealogist for almost 40 years! In August of 2019 I completed a Masters in Public History with a certificate in Archival Studies, and I also have a certificate in Genealogical Studies. I have a good understanding of American History's timeline, and how and why Americans migrated into new parts of this country.

I have transcribed many of the older cemeteries in Dedham, Westwood, Walpole, Norfolk and a few in Sharon. I not only transcribed the gravestones in these cemeteries (noting style and condition of the stones), but I also mapped and researched the land of these cemeteries too. This project has been a labor of appreciation for all those who have offer up genealogical information on the internet for free (my favorite word!)....so I am trying to pay back for those who have ancestors in Norfolk County.

Another transcription project I worked on was photographing and transcribing the records of the Second Parish Church of South Dedham. I have also researched the history of older homes in Norfolk County for Historical Societies.

I am hoping all my work will lead to a job in history!
