Genealogy has been an obsession of mine for 30 years and I have a wide breadth of genealogical source knowledge, both online and off-line. My specialty has become looking for LGBTQ people in the genealogical record. I began building my own family history by interviewing parents, grandparents and other relations about my Nicaraguan roots as a teenager. 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 have researched U.S., Canadian and Irish families for friends and clients. In January 2014, I began volunteering with the California Genealogical Society as the editor and publisher of a monthly electronic newsletter and continue in that role today. I joined the Board of Directors in 2015 and serve as the Recording Secretary. My genealogy sleuthing skills grow with everyday practice, seminars and attending national conferences. Genealogy is what I do for fun. In my other life, I am an Internal Medicine physician working in Health Information Technology.
