Special Characters Found Here

A native Californian based in San Diego, I’ve been a genealogist for over twenty years in search of my Eastern and Southern ancestors, as well as veterans from the Revolutionary War to WWII. This work has led me to help others in tracking their hard-to-find ancestors and stories. I offer a range of services from conducting full research projects, to locating documents, as well as coaching genealogy DIY’ers to their own victories over recalcitrant relatives.
