Discover Your Roots

I have been researching family history for over 18 years.  I love the discoveries I've made and the journeys my ancestors have taken me on.  

I am eager to help you on your path to discovering your family history!

"To forget one's ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root."

-Chinese Proverb


Overview of Services


Genealogy and Family History Reports

Your full family history written to genealogical standards - including biographical sketches, important events in history, timelines, charts, photographs, maps, and more. By working together, we can cater the project to meet your personal preferences.  
It will be a family heirloom for future generations!

Research - By The Hour

Working on your own family tree but need a specific question answered?  Need documentation for a society application?  I will provide local and internet-based historical and genealogical research, project planning, and evidence analysis.  With a pointed focus, a set time frame, and a low hourly fee, this is a cost-effective option for discovering that elusive ancestor!

Record Retrieval

I can find local records for you throughout Connecticut and parts of Massachusetts or Rhode Island.  
Some important local resources include the History and Genealogy Unit at the Connecticut State Library
and the Connecticut Society of Genealogy Library.

Consultation and Instruction

Sometimes all it takes is a fresh set of eyes!  Let me take a look at what you've collected so far and we can create a research plan to bring you to the next step in your work!
