This is the user page for Charlene M. Pipkin, BA (family history) Accredited Genealogist®. I provide genealogical research, consultation, instruction, field trips, and peer review services through Genealogy Guide, a subsidiary of Ascend Ventures, LLC.

My geographic areas of interest are the U.S. Midwest (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin) and U.S. Great Plains (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas) regions. Contact me at for more information.

Read my article, "Write Yourself a Research Report," posted on the Beta FamilySearch blog.

I'm thrilled that the FamilySearch wiki is available. Thanks for allowing me to contribute. Please be patient as I continue to learn.

Wiki To Do Items

There are items that I found on the wiki that either I want to edit/create or that I'll suggest someone else gives attention to. If you've been asked to collaborate, please review the topic of interest and add to the "discussion" tab in my Sandbox.


Dear Charlene,

We wanted to send out a quick thank you for contributing to a FamilySearch Historical Records' article. You may not know it, but this is a new project that is just getting off the ground and your contribution helps! The information you provide is invaluable to those users who are searching out further information about collections in FamilySearch; it helps them make a deeper connection with their research, especially when it has to do with their own ancestry. It’s your contributions that are keeping the project rolling forward. Thank you.

We'd love to have you become part of our community here. We've got lots of ways to get involved a little deeper into the project and what the project entails: In this page you will find information about the FamilySearch Records project, getting started in wiki editing, tasks for which you can sign up to volunteer, etc. We are excited you have decided to share your talents, time and resources towards forwarding the goals of and those who use it (including you!).

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you and help you out in any way we can.
