I am a native Texan and attended Southern

Methodist University and the University of

North Texas. While raising three children,

wrote books for parents about resources for children and ran a children's bookstore. My genealogical pursuits began after my mother's death in 1993 and I took my first client case as a professional in 1996. My other interests include the history of Central Texas the Territory of West Florida which stretched from the Mississippi River through the Florida Panhandle.

I provided Texas research for Season 3 of the U.S. production of Who Do You Think You Are? and was a manuscript reader for Elizabeth Shown Mills's Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace. I also had the honor of revising the Transcribing, Extracting and Abstracting Genealogical Records course provided by the National Genealogical Society. I am a consulting genealogist for the Daniel Coleman Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. My genealogical education and memberships are listed below.
