Biography:
Valerie Metzler Archivist/Historian has been a professional in the field of history since 1976 and has been in private practice since 1985. Family history research is one of my specialities. My clients have been families of a wide variety of nationalities, many of whom have roots in Blair county. Others are worldwide. As an archivist who was employed at the U.S. Army Military History Institute, I have a strong military history background, but my personal favorite field of study remains Anabaptist history and genealogy. I am available to help you at your convenience and to travel wherever necessary.
