In my blog, I post many helpful and entertaining bits of information.
I use my experiences in research to illustrate new strategies and innovative ideas for you to use as you break through your brick walls, like I did mine. If you recognize any names or families I talk about, please contact me so we can collaborate. As we take this journey together, I’d love to hear about your challenges and successes, so subscribe and join the conversation!
My favorite city for genealogical research is St. Louis. As the home of my ancestors for over 150 years, St Louis is full of treasures. I will bring you a wealth of knowledge in your search for ancestors in St. Louis.
My husband’s family has taken me to in-depth study of the Natchitoches, Louisiana area from the time when it was the border between French held and Spanish held territory, to the Carolinas, where Bamberg county was named for a relative, and to New York and Holland Land Purchase research.
Another line led to research in Puritan Boston in the 1630s, to a brother-in-law of both Rev. John Cotton and Rev . Richard Mather. He was numbered among the early Baptists in spite of his relations. Lutheran church planters and New Light Baptists in the Appalachians, LDS pioneers and Catholics, church records yield some of the most interesting insights into their lives.
