Welcome to KinQuery.Com where I hope to help you find out more about who you are and where you came from.
At KinQuery we believe that family history is more than just the dates and places listed on a document. A true family history is focused on the story behind those dates and places. Building a family history is a craft, and one that I have developed for almost thirty years.
Working together I can help you make sense of your history by researching your ancestors and building a library of documentation and narrative reports about your family’s journey in the world.
