Professional Genealogy Research Services

At Your Storied Past Genealogy you’ll find a professional genealogical research package to fit your goals.

Are you ready to take a journey into your family’s past?

I believe that every family’s history is remarkable. Your family history is more than dates and numbers. It’s filled with lifetimes, traditions, and stories—stories that need to be told and passed on. My passion is finding those stories through solid research and bringing them to life! 

I’d love the opportunity to help you discover and explore your ancestors’ lives and world. I can help you begin or continue your journey into your family’s past!

Finding names and dates are necessary to build a family tree. But have you ever wanted to know more? Storytelling and social history are about bringing depth to an ancestor’s life through the details. You may find out what your great-grandmother’s house looked like or what type of traditions were common in your ancestor’s community.

At Your Storied Past Genealogy you’ll learn more than just names and dates. You’ll get a more personal story.
