TREES RESEARCHED & ACTIVE TREES

Experience & success matter!

REGIONS:  I cover all US regions & foreign generations before immigration.

I have extensively studied numerous families for 400-year spans from before immigration to America. I have followed their wide westward swaths from the northeastern U.S. and Atlantic coastline, throughout the Midwest and South, then Westward to the Pacific. I have traced many family trees in almost every state in America, since Jamestown and before the West and South were settled, to modern times. I also have strong knowledge of the history of the Deep South. I have traced families through pre-colonial America and the 13 colonies and have documented trees as far back as the 1100s (12th century). I have traced their ancestors to more than 50 foreign countries.
