About


Head shot January 30 2016

I’m a family historian with 20 years of experience in researching my family’s origins in Poland, Germany, the U.S. and Canada. I’m a native of Western New York, and I hold a bachelor of arts degree in biological sciences from the State University of New York at Buffalo. I received my master of arts in endocrinology from the University of California, Berkeley, but I’ve been a stay-at-home mom to my four children for many years. I enjoy sharing research strategies and resources via genealogy lectures and webinars, which I’ve given for Polish genealogical societies nationally and regionally, as well as for a number of local genealogical societies and library groups. Upcoming lectures are featured in the sidebar on the right.

I’m an active member of a number of genealogy groups on Facebook, and I administer a few of them as well, including Poland & Genealogy, the Galicia Family History Group, and Genealogical Translations. I’m always happy to connect with fellow family historians, especially those researching the same surnames or  geographic regions, so if you’ve enjoyed this blog or have any questions, feel free to drop me a line. Please note that I am not presently accepting private clients for genealogical research.
