I have been researching families for over 30 years. Working on my own family resulted in a career change. I began my professional life as a speech teacher and a yearbook sponsor and am now working as a professional librarian and genealogist. The skills I learned in those early jobs are still helpful - speaking to a group, tailoring a message for a given audience, arranging images and text for maximum understanding.
As a child, my unrelenting curiosity and constant questions got me into trouble. Now I channel that desire to know to develop research strategies. My curiosity and tenacity are part of what make me a good researcher.
Contact me (allmyancestorsllc AT gmail DOT com) if you need help in Oklahoma. I can help—I can do the research or I can consult with you about where you can look and how to analyze what you've found. I can also put your research into an album preserving your photos and stories, along with the story of your family.
