Researcher, writer, lecturer, storyteller. I served as a research consultant at the Family History library assisting Japanese patrons as well as for ShedMedia, producers of TV series, "Who Do You Think You Are?". I speak Japanese fluently, lived in Japan and use native Japanese translators for accuracy.
I research Japanese lineage in Japan and have successfully helped clients find hundreds of Japanese ancestors. I also assist in obtaining US government records of Japanese Americans held in relocation camps during WWII. I also do US research at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. In addition I enjoy doing consultant work, preparing research plans for beginning genealogists as well as doing heir search.
