Welcome to Right Ancestor!

Welcome to Right Ancestor, a blog highlighting my genealogical research. This features information and exciting finds not only in my family tree, but in the family histories of my clients. I'll also share the weird coincidences, unsolved mysteries, and ruminations on generations past.

Sometimes in genealogical research, we find someone we think is related to us, only to find out later that they're not. Please visit Wrong Ancestor for a growing collection of
mistakes in genealogical research that could benefit others.

If you're interested in having me research your family history, please contact me at rightancestor@gmail.com.

Thank you,
