Mary Kircher Roddy, CG®

MKR Genealogy

Summary Tab
Extended Tab

Mary Kircher Roddy grew up in San Rafael, California. She earned a Bachelor degree in Liberal Studies from The University of California, Riverside in 1982 and a Master in Professional Accounting from the University of Texas in 1984. She earned a certificate in Genealogy and Family History at the University of Washington in 2005. Mary became interested in genealogy in 2000 in anticipation of a sabbatical in Ireland where her husband was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Limerick. She was sure she would complete all her Irish genealogy while her husband taught at UL and her children attended Monaleen School. Fifteen years later, the genealogy is still a work in progress. But the trip to Ireland awakened something deep in her Celtic bloodlines, the Irish tradition of the Seanachi, the storytellers and historians of yore. Mary has published articles in Family Chronicle and Internet Genealogy. She's currently working on a novel set in the San Francisco area in 1900 and 1901, based on stories of several of her ancestors and their associates which she discovered in her genealogical research. Mary frequently lectures around the Seattle area, and is an active member of Seattle Genealogical Society. Her husband's most recent sabbatical brought them to Sydney, Australia and while he taught at the University of Western Sydney, Mary spent her time swapping research strategies and methodologies with the genealogists at the Botany Bay Family History Society. She is a member of the Genealogical Speakers Guild, The Association of Professional Genealogists, and the National Genealogical Society.
