About Me

I've spent the past 10+ years trying to leverage technology in various ways to help genealogists locate resources. My latest project is called Live Roots that launched in Oct. 2008. I also travel around the country, purchasing original (small) documents that I transcribe and make available through a project called Family Tree Connection that launched in Dec. 2003. New transcribed resources are posted every Sunday.

Please feel free to add me as a friend here in Genealogy Wise, on Facebook, and/or follow me on Twitter.

Hello, I was on internet looking for sites to feature in my column in the Heritage Newsletter of the NEPA Genealogical Society Library and came across your site It is a great site with so much information and I especially liked the articles. When I saw you name I thought I recognized it as one I have seen on GW. I will be sure to study it in the near future and use it as an excellent source for those looking for genealogy help
