Genealogy has been an obsession of mine for decades and I have a wide breadth of genealogical source knowledge, both online and offline.
As a teenager, I began building my own family history by interviewing parents, grandparents, and other relations about my Nicaraguan roots. When I married I took on the new adventure of researching my husband's Ukrainian and Polish Jewish immigrant ancestors. I've researched both of my children's biological origins back to the colonial United States and Western Europe. I've worked with Ancestry DNA matches for many family members and clients.
I have researched U.S., Nicaraguan, Canadian, Irish, Swedish, German, and other nationalities for families for friends, and clients.
In January 2014, I began volunteering with the California Genealogical Society in several roles. I was the editor and publisher of a monthly electronic newsletter until August 2022. I joined the Board of Directors in 2015 and served as the Recording Secretary until 2022. I've also served on the Strategic Planning Committee and the Historical Archive Committee.
I'm an expert in RootsMagic genealogy software. I've archived records for MyChinaRoots, the California Genealogical Society, and private clients.
My genealogy sleuthing skills grow with everyday practice, seminars, and attending national conferences. Genealogy is my life's passion. In my other life, I am an Internal Medicine physician working in Health Information Technology.
