Donna assisted me and my daughter when we were in the process of applying for membership to the NSDAR (National Society Daughters of the American Revolution). I had initially done some research on my own, but hit a brick wall trying to locate key documents that were needed. Donna was able to find and secure the required documents to be submitted with our initial applications to NSDAR in Washington, DC. Our applications were approved for that first submission and we became members of the local chapter in Rhode Island shortly afterwards. If you need someone to assist in your research, Donna should be your first choice. She has expert knowledge in her field and adheres to the genealogical guidelines for standards, proof, and ethics per the Board for Certification of Genealogists.

I highly recommend Donna as a go-to genealogist to work on your family trees. Donna’s expertise rests with knowing where to look for specific information. There are many records that are not on Ancestry and MyHeritage, but instead in special-focus archives and books.

I worked with Donna recently and had an excellent experience. Donna was timely and helpful in retrieving some death certificates for my company in Connecticut. She was communicative and even provided additional information and recommendations when the search led to some unexpected findings. Would highly recommend.

I belong to several genealogical societies.  It is a great way to help societies that very rarely receive government funding and most often rely on volunteers and donations.  My membership dues help protect our history.

Historical societies hold a bevvy of unknown primary genealogical sources, most often from local sources such as:  almshouse logs, doctor's logs, survey books, original wills and deeds, family photo albums, and scrap books.  You would be surprised to find that sometimes a family's history is found thousands of miles away. 

I use these genealogical gems in my research along with the wonderful state, university, and local libraries, house museums, town halls, historical graveyards (a jaunt through the woods is a fun day outing), and so many more sources to help you reconnect with your history. 

I spent many years conducting crime scene investigations and forensic analysis in the Los Angeles County, CA area. For 20 years,  genealogy was my part time hobby. 

I helped family members and successfully conducted research for my Daughters of American Revolution (DAR) application.  Once I decided to turn my fun hobby into a fun full time career, I immediately starting taking certificate classes, attending local lectures, webinars, and conferences so I could learn as much as possible from as many people as possible.  I firmly believe in gaining and sharing knowledge.  

My forensic skills help me think about clues differently and see the small details that may lead to knocking down the brick wall or identifying the false lead.

Find out what influenced your ancestors and how you became you.
