Beginning genealogy research at the age of 12, Judy has provided research to clients around the U.S. and Europe, and has presented at national, regional and local conferences. Specializing in Acadian & French-Canadian, Native/Indigenous research, and Michigan, Ontario, and Quebec resources and records. Judy is also a specialist in Scottish research and can translate French and German records. Judy's Indigenous ancestors have been in North America for thousands of years (Lakota/Metisse), her French-Canadian ancestors arrived in 1607 to what became Quebec and Acadia, Scottish ancestors in the 1780s and 1830s, and her Polish and German (Pomeranian) ancestors arrived in the late 1880s.
With lineages to the royal families of Europe, United Empire Loyalists, these families are French-speaking and English-speaking and Judy's research includes the various spelling/phonetic variations that our families use through the years. Somewhere in these families there are also Jewish families in Eastern Europe which is part of what Judy is utilizing DNA to research, as well as the "original" Polish surname that the family changed when they immigrated. With family name variations of Nimer, Niemiec, Niemczyk, Niemcyzk, Nemshak, and more, Judy welcomes inquiries of those who are genetically linked with Eastern European family heritage.
Services include lineage studies, specific look-ups in Michigan, Quebec, Scottish and Native American/Indigenous resources. Utilizing online and library research, Judy has an extensive network of contacts that also assist her in finding rare and remote resources.
