The Armchair Genealogist

If you are just getting started in your family history research or like me perform the majority of your research from the comfort of your Lay-Z-Boy and laptop then you have come to the right place. In this blog we’ll discuss the genealogy world, the ins and outs. How to break down those brick walls and offer up some tricks of the trade. We will lay it out in a simple, easy to follow, no nonsense manner. Personally, I have found that sometimes the genealogy world can get a little too academic not to mention extremely techy in the last couple of years. For those who are new to this exciting new hobby then I hope my blog can help pave your entrance into this very addicting and compelling pastime. The Blog

Reclaiming Kin

I’m an engineer by day, but genealogy is my not-so-hidden passion. The quest to uncover my past has been a rewarding adventure for me, more than just uncovering the names and stories of my ancestors, but extending to meeting cousins who have become new friends and also the great relationships I’ve formed with my fellow genealogists, like Carole, Marion and Alice. When I first began in 1997, I had one grandparent still living and none of my family members knew very much past maybe the name of a great-grandparent or so. I’m proud that my research has taken back some of that lost memory–and I’m not even close to being done.

I enjoy helping others to uncover their heritage and I teach and write every opportunity I get. I believe strongly in encouraging all genealogists to write and record the wonderful untold stories of their families and the communities of which they were apart. We’ve got to tell more of our own stories. Too many elders are passing on and all of the wonderful gems of knowledge they have are being lost. We have an unparalleled opportunity today with the advent of technology to reclaim this lost past–to reclaim our kin.
The details of my current research can be found on the subpages here; if you think we may have a connection or you just have questions or comments, feel free to email me at msualumni33 [at] verizon [dot] net. I do have a genealogy business where I take a limited number of clients a year, so also contact me if you’d like more information on those services and pricing.
