I am a genealogy researcher, lecturer, and blogger. I have a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies. I completed 40 courses in research, analysis and methodology to obtain this certificate from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies.
I have lectured at genealogy conferences in Western Canada, the local genealogy society, and the Family History Centre in Calgary. I enjoy teaching people how to find new resources and different ways to do genealogy.
My siblings wouldn’t listen to family stories, so I decided to blog about them. Now, they read and enjoy the stories. At least, that’s what they tell me.
When I was 17, I listened to my great-aunts’ and uncles’ stories and became “hooked”. None of my ancestors are famous, but I love finding out what their lives were like.
I am active in the genealogy world in Calgary, Alberta. I facilitate a Genealogy Group at the Airdrie Public library, am a family history consultant for the Calgary Family History Centre and volunteer for the Alberta Family Histories Society.
