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.

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. Here at KinQuery.Com you will also find my own personal BLOG sharing discoveries, techniques and musings on the importance of understanding where we come from. Through the years I have worked with clients whose backgrounds hail from a diverse range of locations and I have steadily gathered resources along the way. Perhaps my collection can help you too, check it out here: RESOURCES

Conducting family history research can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. With my decades of experience in this field I can help you bring your family’s history to life. Click here to see some of the ways that I can help you: How Can I Help?

On this page you will find a bevy of resources for genealogical research, from compilations of records to anything else that I have found helpful over the years. Please note that some of these resources may require a fee. I will update this as I discover additional resources. Bookmark this page!
