Below are research reports exemplifying my research competency and writing style. I created these reports for my own personal research and subsequently made them available to family members.
Where Were The Ancestral Origins of John Wilson, who died 1799?
Through extensive Y-DNA and autosomal DNA analysis and coupled with traditional genealogical records, this report discovers that my 6th times great grandfather was likely from the townland of Derryhillagh in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland with his Scottish ancestors part of the Ulster Plantation in the 1600s.
Who Were the Parents of Sarah T. (Wilson) McKinstry, born 1836?
Using a wide variety of traditional genealogical records, including U.S. census records, Quaker Church records, Poorhouse records, and Civil War pension files, I not only identified Sarah’s parents but also reconstructed her family tree including 10 other siblings.
Who Were the Parents of Rebecca (Pettit) Gable, born 1819?
Using a wide variety of traditional genealogical records, including U.S. census records, Poorhouse records, Insolvent Debtor Petitions, Court of Common Pleas cases, and obituaries, I not only identified Rebecca’s parents but also reconstructed her immediate family including six siblings.
