I am a professional genealogist who has been enthusiastically researching my family since I was 17 years old. My interest in history, especially the history of my family, spurred me to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in History. Then in 2009, I received a Certificate in Canadian Records from the National Institute of Genealogical Studies. I am a specialist in Ontario, Quebec and Canadian research. Also, I have extensive experience researching American and English records.
I have lectured on such diverse topics as “Fun with Family History”, “Ontario Land Records”, “Canadian Records”, and “Talk to your Grandparents – A Seminar for Pre-teens”.
I am a recipient of the Brian W. Hutchison Genealogical Scholarship. I volunteer at the Calgary Family History Centre and am a past president of the Alberta Family Histories Society.
I have lectured at Family History Centre Conferences in Calgary and have presented at the monthly programs for the Alberta Family Histories Society. I’m an enthusiastic and engaging presenter who is comfortable in front of crowds.
Every fourth Saturday you can find me at the Calgary Public Library volunteering for the Family History Coaching program, a joint program with the AFHS and the Library where I’m helping others with their family history and where I always learn something new.
For other fun I like to hike and camp.
