How can I help you?

At Past Forward Family History, genealogy isn't just the name of the game, it's the basis of a passion and the result of my deepest values and beliefs about people. As a family historian, I believe that all families are deserving of respect and dignity and that a single person can carry huge amounts of history with them. My job is to help you unearth that history and connect you with your past, your community, and your culture.

Why Family History Matters

Unlike traditional genealogy, which is a listing of family lineage, often on the male line, family history has the potential to truly come to life. While it certainly tells the genealogically story of your family using traditional sources like birth records and censuses, it also adds valuable context that helps place you in history and culture, giving you a sense of belonging in the sweep of time and the stories of peoples that have been, still are, and are yet to come.
