A seventh generation Pennsylvania German, Holly has over 30 years of research experience with a focus on the middle Atlantic region. Her sister’s desire to join the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) was the impetus for developing expertise in lineage society work.

Prior to starting her personalized research firm, Family History Guides, she was a genealogist with Ancestry ProGenealogists and a textile collection manager for Quilts, Inc., which provided opportunities to research antique quilts and learn the stories of their makers.

Holly worked on my Ancestry DNA tree and researched my biological father's side of my family who I knew nothing about. She made connections and researched every last bit of evidence, and long lost relatives got found. Her work has greatly impacted my life! Holly's communication in the midst of such an emotionally turbulent time for me, was clear, direct, compassionate and stellar. I really can't recommend her highly enough for whatever project comes along. Grazie Mille, Holly!

Holly located and compiled materials for our mother’s posthumous application to the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. She was very thorough and emailed us frequently with status updates. Holly contacted the local DRT chapter to ensure that the application package was complete, and she explained subsequent steps in the application process that we were responsible for finalizing. We were surprised at how quickly Holly was able to pull the materials together, and her final report was professionally prepared. We’re so grateful for her help!
