ProGen Member Overview

Genealogy has been my passion for most of my life. My grandfather and his sisters started with information on a single line, and I received my great-aunt’s copy when I was ten and was totally hooked.

I enjoy helping others on their journey to discovering their family. My research specialty is primarily in New England, New York City and Ireland, but am experienced in other areas of the U.S. and in Italy as well.
