Janet Hall Werner

Summary Tab
Extended Tab

Janet Hall Werner has been researching her own and others' family histories for over 20 years. 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 specializes in Irish, German and English immigration. She also has recently used DNA to find the ancestral villages of a client's ancestors who fled Ireland during the Great Famine. She has also found the birth parents of adoptees by analyzing their DNA matches. She also specializes in discovering the stories that are hidden in the records, and in finding a family's tragedies and its "black sheep". She writes thorough research reports, as well as 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). She has research experience in most states east of the Mississippi River, from the 17th century through the 20th century. And 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. She recently assumed the leadership of the Fairfax Genealogical Society's DNA Special Interest Group.
