I am a professional genealogist who, at the age of 17, decided to research my family history. As I listened to my aunts’ and uncles’ stories and recorded their information I became “hooked”. This spurred me to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in History and continue my education by receiving a Certificate in Canadian Records from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies. I am specialist in Ontario, Quebec and Canadian research and have experience researching American and English records.
I am enthusiastic about teaching family historians how to research, and inspiring them to consider all records.
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 am events coordinator for the Alberta Family Histories Society.
My husband, Rob, says I’m a little obsessive about genealogy but I do spend time with him, a favourite is hiking and camping in the mountains.
