For the last 25+ years, I've worked as a finance executive for a global corporation. About 15 years ago, I started seriously researching my family ancestry, and I was able to trace both my maternal and my paternal line back to 1700s.

I've identified ancestors that were free people of color. I've even traced several separate lineages of my enslaved ancestors through slave property rights documentation.

I've helped many with their personal genealogical quests and I've shared my personal genealogical findings on my blog: Ancestors in the Present.

In 2017, I will begin doing workshops and seminars to help others get started in genealogy. I also have run Ancestral Pathways LLC, which provides genealogical services.
