Full-Time, Professional Genealogist and Writer Specializing in Pennsylvania and Surrounding States

I am an established historical and genealogical researcher and a published, professional writer. My bylines [200+] have appeared in national, regional, and local publications. Clips can be found on my web sites: and

I provided research services to NBC's "Who Do You Think You Are?" and Canada's "Ancestors in the Attic" television program, and conducted archival research for a SyFy Channel special on the Kecksburg, PA UFO incident.

I was the first genealogist to work with the owners of Philadelphia's historic Greenwood Cemetery to evaluate the historical scope and significance of its burials in advance of a massive renovation project.

My research was recognized in a recent article in "North South Trader's Civil War," and I provided background for a biography on business magnate Charles J. Harrah.

In 2010 I was interviewed by the Harrisburg Patriot News for a "how to" article on genealogy research.

In 2009 I was invited to join's ExpertConnect program where I provided genealogical research for family history clients around the world. At the closure of the program I enjoyed a 5-star rating.

I conduct on-site research in court houses, libraries and other repositories throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region and serve clients across the country and around the globe.  Please visit or for complete details on my research services.
