I have been researching family history since I was in my teens. I have extensively researched my own history and that of my husband. My father's family arrived in 1920 from Sicily, but my mother's includes colonial America in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, NC, and Virginia. My husband's line includes many immigrants from the 1800s from several German states and Alsace. We also share roots in the Mennonite immigrants to southeastern Pennsylvania. In addition to those mentioned, I have researched in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Arkansas, North Carolina, Mississipi, and Georgia. My experience extends to on-site research at many county courthouses, state archives, historical societies, and state libraries, as well as at the Family History Center in Salt Lake City and the National Archives. I am an administrator of four DNA projects at FamilyTreeDNA, and also administer kits at all four major DNA testing companies.
I conduct research in the U.S. as well as using the Alsacian and Italian records available on-line. I can also serve as your genealogical research coach and guide to help you discover your own family history. So, whether you want someone to conduct your research for you, or guide you to get started or in tackling a problem you have encountered in your research, I would enjoy working with you!
I also speak on various genealogy topics (including DNA analysis) to local, regional, and national genealogical and historical societies.
My book The South Precinct of Dutchess County New York 1740-1790 (copyright 2018) includes tax, militia, and tenant lists of the period, along with custom maps of farm lots of the 1750s-1770s and a history of the area now encompassed in Putnam County, NY.
