I began my interest in genealogy in 1998 while working in a marketing role at a genealogy company. I knew I could be a better marketer by understanding my customers, and their passion for family history. So, I began research on my own family and have been working on them ever since. My personal family history is focused, in part, on the following surnames and locations.

You can click on the surnames below, or the dropdown menu from the Surnames tab, to see more  information about each of these families. And if one of them is your family too, please contact me!
