About Me

Who I Am

I conduct genealogical research primarily in North Carolina and Virginia. I have experience in oral histories and interviews with older family members as well as more traditional research methods.  While standard research procedures provide many answers to genealogical questions, sometimes other ancestral  questions are more difficult to unravel. In overcoming these genealogical challenges, I access multiple types of historical records and advanced research strategies.
