Cheryl Nestler Odell
Another graduate of Boston University’s Advanced Genealogical Research Certificate Program, Cheryl knows the War of American Independence like it happened in her backyard. (Which is hilarious, since she’s from California.)
Our go-to expert in Lineage Societies, Cheryl has her own family history business, but we love her so much, we drag her over to play when we can.

Laura Brickhouse Dickson
Laura’s the mathemetician. Seriously – she’s been comptroller for enormous companies. She’s detailed, she’s focused, and she’s ALL about facts adding up.
(In genealogy, like in math, facts run the show.)
Laura also helps to make sure that we don’t spend more than we make. And, if Maria doesn’t stop giving away free t-shirts, she’s going to have to get tough…

Annette Miller Rice
Pennsylvania native Annette has Amish/Mennonite family roots, and we defer to her in all things PA Dutch as well as Old German. In deference to this heritage, note the pic, above, is of her ancestor John Yoder.
After many years as a teacher, Annette is a stickler for the quality and accuracy that defines a great historian.

With nearly three quarters of the world’s historical records not yet digitized, much of what we need to find for you is still hiding in libraries, archives and historical repositories. Our network of intrepid researchers is then deployed to acquire and sometimes translate documents – resulting in cost savings for you, our clients.
