Hi, I’m Jane. Welcome to my blog.
I created this website in order to share my experiences in researching family histories and genealogy.
For the past decade I’ve been digging into my family history. I started researching my family soon after both my parents and grandmother died. It was a strange moment for me to realize that the fountain of most every family story, legend, or fact I had ever heard had suddenly gone dry. It scared me to acknowledge that many of my relatives who I grew up spending time with, who could always answer a question about our family roots, were no longer here. So I began sorting through all the photos, documents and records that my family left behind. I pieced the items I had together with information available online. And I reached out to family members who might be able to help put more of our story together.
What started as a hobby quickly became an obsession. In addition to my own family history, I began helping friends with their own family stories and mysteries. And then I started researching ways to make my fascination with family history and genealogy my career which led me to look into several online genealogy educational programs. In December 2015 I completed the Boston University Professional Genealogy certificate program and have become a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
As a budding Professional Genealogist, I am looking forward to a future of helping others clarify their family’s stories. In my own research, I continue to make new discoveries and put missing pieces of my family puzzle together.
