So I created Laurel's Lineage
My name is Laurel Kennedy and I have been researching my family history for over 15 years now.
I've been helping family and friends with their research as well. I decided why not do this as a career, earn money doing what I love anyway. Make money and be able to stay at home with my children.
Be able to help others find their missing past.
I specialize in researching in Wisconsin, Pennsylvannia and New York. But have also done work in many other areas including Germany, Holland and Scotland.
I will research an area you're having trouble with, help you if you're starting from scratch, help you with lookups in the Wisconsin area(Find cemetaries, church records, take pictures of sites, etc.),input any data you already have into the computer in gedcom format so that you may share information with others and also scan documents and photos for you.
The Ancestor List
Are we related? Is your great-grandfather our mother's cousin's grandma's nephew once removed? There's only one way to find out . . . . In this list, names and dates are indexed by surname:
