Daniel R. Jones, MS, AG
is an Accredited Genealogist specializing in Swiss and German research. His interest in genealogy began when as a youngster he would pore over his mother's Book of Remembrance, but his love of family history took off at the age of 13 when a Boy Scout merit badge brought him to a Family History Center at a local LDS chapel. Daniel has been working professionally since 2003 in helping several high-profile clients with research all over Europe. He has experience in numerous archives across more than a dozen countries in Europe, North America, and Africa.
