Regina Mize - The Genealogy Maven

Summary Tab
Extended Tab

Former forensic investigator turned professional genealogist skilled in ancestral, historical, and regional geographic research. I help genealogists and family historians learn how to discover their ancestral roots, expand their family history, and break through brick walls using a combination of sound genealogical research practices, available genealogical records, and DNA evidence. As a genealogical coach, educator, and speaker, I teach students and clients sound genealogy methodology that allows them to develop a solid research plan, discover supporting documentation and other evidence, evaluate that evidence, make logical proof arguments to support their research, properly cite those sources, and develop genealogy research skills to advance genealogical research and help break through genealogical "brick walls". While my primary focus is on genealogy education, I do also provide research services on a limited basis specializing in "brick wall" research. Geographic areas of expertise include the Southeastern and Northeastern United States, particularly those states and regions bordering the Central and Southern Appalachian Mountains, including Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. Another area of specialization is 18th - 19th century migration with an emphasis on Ulster-Irish immigrants who migrated from the Northeastern United States and settled throughout the Appalachian region, as well as Moravian migration into the Wachovia region of North Carolina.
