It all started with a cookbook. A pair of them, actually. Mennonite Foods and Folkways volumes 1 & 2 by Norma Jost Voth. They're as much about my people's history, cultural customs and stories as much as recipes. I read them cover to cover and was hooked. My search for my family's history began back in 2009 and continues to this day.


I have a first career as a professional musician. What I bring with me to genealogy is attention to detail, accuracy, persistence, and passion. I have been running a small business for many years and work diligently to keep my clients happy.


I am a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and follow the code of ethics they have established. You can read that code here.
