I have been a professional genealogist since 1984 and have worked for hundreds of clients, written and contributed to books and articles, and lectured at conferences, seminars and workshops. My specialties are Irish-American connections, 18th and 19th century New Englanders, solving "brickwall" ancestry problems, missing heirs, and Native Americans of southeastern Massachusetts.

Service Description:
To trace an American family back to Ireland and continue following its history there requires using a large number of both Irish and American documentary sources interactively. My 40 plus years of experience have made me intimately acquainted with census, vital, naturalization, tombstone, newspaper, immigration, and church records and especially with estate records of the "landlord" families in Ireland, which can provide details on the tenant farmers from whom Americans descend, often back into the 1700s. American "brickwall" ancestry problems in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries can often be solved using court records, land records, newspapers, account books and other manuscript sources. I have made myself very familiar with these and other resources to break through my clients' brickwalls.
