I have been researching my ancestry and helping others research since 1994.
I have a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University and have 20 years of project management experience – in IT as well as Operations and Finance. I also help folks get started in Genealogy – how to document, research, and most importantly, get hands on experience.
My engineering degree, coupled with my Project Management/IT/computer related experience has proven quite useful when it comes to the organization and documentation of family facts, photos, and memories. I started my research because I felt that I had no real family. Was I wrong! I have been able to find many ancestors as well as connect with many cousins along the way.
I am the current Website Chair for the Will Grundy Counties (IL) Genealogical Society and am a current member of the Illinois State Genealogical Society, the Polish Genealogical Society of America, and the Wisconsin Historical Society, among others.
