Details Genealogical Research

Summary Tab
Extended Tab


Determined to learn where the first Baxter came from, I began chasing those twitchy little leaves, like everybody else. Before long, visits to the Scottish Lowlands (and later, throughout the U.S. and England) were the norm, rooting through archives, libraries, graveyards, local history societies, courthouses, and any other place that might have even a tiny scrap of our family story. My adoration for research, complexity, and discovery found a new purpose and it was genealogical research.

From traditional "paper trail" investigation to DNA analysis, my formal genealogical education has been built around a desire to help others who crave knowledge about their heritage, while adhering to the highest possible standards:
Code of Ethics, The Association of Professional Genealogists
Code of Ethics and Standards, The Board for Certification of Genealogists
The National Genealogical Society's Genealogy Guidelines
Genetic Genealogy Standards as approved by the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy

Don't be intimidated. Don't be overwhelmed. All you have to do is reach out, and ask for help from someone who knows the ropes.
