Professional Genealogist
If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
I specialize in United States research, with an emphasis on (but not limited to) Virginia, Louisiana, Tennessee, New York, and New Jersey. I began studying and researching genealogy in 1985, and have accumulated a vast array of repositories, insights and techniques. I have been able to locate a man's birth father, whom he never met, beginning with only a name and birth date/place. I am often able to obtain several DOCUMENTED generations of a person's family tree with very little information to start with. My rates are quite affordable, and guarantee results. Break through those brick walls...let me shake the branches of your family tree. If you are researching in parts of Virginia (including but not limited to Northern Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley) or Maryland, I am able to perform extra services, such as retrieval of court records, photography (landmarks, sites, gravestones) and more.

I am trying to sort out whether these are all the same John, or not. The contestants are John Savage and John Worden. In the photos, above, it seems that the man on the right has ears that protrude much farther than the man on the left. My… Continue

Worden Mystery Solved!

Posted on April 15, 2009 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

For years, I have been attempting to solve the mystery of the centenarian. My grandfather, John Emory Worden, always claimed that a great grandfather of his was a centenarian, and that the family was from Wilkes-Barre. I quickly identified who the centenarian was (John Worden 1741-1842), but was unable to make the connection between my last known confirmed generation (John Worden the civil war soldier) and this man.

The big breakthrough was finding that James Worden (Wordin)… Continue
