You might ask: “why Genealogy Pants?” This is like calling someone “fancy pants” or “smarty pants” … you know “Genealogy Pants!” I have a quirky sense of humor and worked for a long time to find a NAME for my business that wasn’t just my name or some variation on ‘trees,’ ‘roots’ or ‘ancestors.’

My personal research focuses primarily on midwestern and Great Lakes states although I have connections and experience throughout the U.S., Canada, England, Ireland, and Germany. I have helped many clients find their immigrant ancestors, solve family mysteries, and reach back through the generations to uncover hidden family stories.

I am eager to share the importance of genealogy and family history through education, lecturing, writing, and mentoring.  This site is a great place to learn more about my genealogical programs, personal and professional research progress through my blog, find my bio and credentials, and learn more about my genealogical services.
