Liane Jensen, who blogs at Liane Jensen Research, has a passion for family history. She has been learning about her family history for over 25 years. Her formal genealogy training includes completing the ProGen Study course and SLIG's Advanced Genealogy Methods. Her research interests include DNA, sharing genealogy with children, Midwestern genealogy, and lineage society applications. Her formal training is in engineering and computer science (BS EECS, MS EE), so she loves to find patterns and analyze. Liane was fortunate to be a child with the American Girl series of books was first published, sparking an interest in history. She read Meet Kirsten with her grandfather and learned that one of her ancestors had a similar journey to America. That along with a booklet on her direct paternal line sparked an interest in genealogy. She was fortunate to be raised by a computer enthusiast, who gave her one of the very first copies of Family Tree Maker to install on her computer. She has been recording her ancestors and researching ever since. They lived near one of the National Archives branches, where she and her father spent precious, memorable trips reeling through microfilm in search of ancestors. In 2016 one of her favorite bloggers, Dick Eastman, wrote a post inviting other genealogists to blog as well. She considered it, but wasn't sure. That same week she happened to watch the movie The Rookie for the first time, and was struck by the line, "it was ok to think about what you want to do until it was time to start doing what you were meant to do." It stuck with her. And her blog was born. Currently she is a stay-at-home Mom. She educates herself on genealogy topics and researches whenever she can. She lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area.
