Genealogy or Family History?

Kerry Farmer

A family history can be so much more interesting than just names and dates. Finding their stories helps us understand our ancestors' struggles and achievements.

Use the drop-down menus or the search field above to find the various free genealogy resources on this site, including information resources and the lists of useful links prepared for courses I teach. Check out the main family names that I am researching. See what I've been writing in my blog.

If you need a professional genealogist, I can help you find details about your ancestors including background information that provide insights into their lives. Or perhaps you need help understanding your DNA test results and what to do next. Contact directly for more information about our family history research service.
