This is the site which formerly housed my historical consulting and genealogy business, which I have shuttered in light of my full time employment at the National Archives in St Louis. I still enjoy investigating historical mysteries and connecting people to their ancestors, but must do it as a hobby now. I decided to keep this site up because I have connected to many new cousins who have commented on the blog posts about my family. I hope that I can continue writing bits and pieces about my family lore so that further connections can be made. Thanks for visiting!
