I AM A FAMILY HISTORIAN WHO LOVES TO BRING LIFE TO THE PAST IN WAYS THAT ARE TRULY ENGAGING. CAPTIVATING STORIES HAVE NARRATIVES THAT FLOW AS SEAMLESSLY AS GOOD BOOK AND ARE PEPPERED WITH PHOTOGRAPHS, MAPS, AND LOCAL HISTORY. LOOKING DEEP AT THE DNA SHARED BETWEEN COUSINS AND RELATIVES CAN ADD NEW DIMENSIONS TO THE PAST. I CREATE INTERESTING AND IMMERSIVE FAMILY HISTORY EXPERIENCES USING ALL THE TOOLS POSSIBLE.
As a partner and adviser, I can help you effectively use DNA to answer genealogical questions. I love to research and to coach. My goal is to help you find answers in the manner that best suits you!
DNA is part of my toolbox from theory to conclusion. When building a case, DNA fits alongside evidence gleaned from all possible sources. I look for history outside the book and follow best practices to reach accurate conclusions.
After the questions are answered, narratives should be captivating — stories should come alive! My visual toolbox creates books, illustrations, and interactive content to make history fun!
Our working sessions are flexible and friendly. Video chats with screen sharing offer the most personal interaction and ability to work with DNA evidence together in real time.
Success begins with education, organization, and integrating DNA as a part of the Genealogical Proof Standard. Success is continued with creativity; bringing history to life through storywriting and illustration.
My education is focused equally on Genetic Genealogy and Genealogy Methodology and I seek the best education experiences in each! My last two years have been filled with two wonderful long-term programs focused on methodology and numerous targeted learning experiences in Genetic Genealogy. As I work with a small number of clients, I am building my portfolio to gain credentials as a Certified Genealogist. As a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, I adhere to their code of professional ethics.
>> I am proud to have attained the Boston University Genealogy Research Certificate (Class 14, April 2014) and completed the eighteen-month ProGen Study Group (Class 23, November 2015).
>> Two of my most memorable learning experiences in working with DNA include the one-week Advanced DNA Analysis Techniques course at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy and the three-session Genetic Genealogy for the Professional Genealogist course from the Virtual Institute of Genealogical Research.
I WORK ON PROJECTS OF ALL TYPES AND SIZES -- LET'S GET CREATIVE!
I will help you find the DNA tests best-suited for your goals and recommend a cost-effective purchasing plan that saves money.
