She has discovered previously unknown Mayflower ancestors in her own family tree, in addition to accused and acquitted Puritan witches, Revolutionary War soldiers, and a female spy for the British during the Revolution. She writes beautiful coffee-table style custom-researched family history books for her clients, and can also produce a narrated slide show (think Ken Burns meets your ancestor), or a simple report on your family history or your research question. She specializes in finding the scandalous and tragic stories hidden in the records, and finding a family s black sheep . She also specializes in 19th century emigration from Germany & Ireland, and research in Colonial New England, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Maryland. She often can trace Irish immigrants back to the exact plots of land where they lived in mid-19th century Ireland. She is a licensed attorney with a law degree from the University of Virginia, a member of the Virginia Bar, and she serves on the Board of the Fairfax Genealogical Society.
