Meet the Author
I'm Jennifer, and I'm an Occasional Genealogist... sort of. For over ten years I've been a professional genealogist. I started researching my own family nearly 30 years ago. Like many of you, I started as an Occasional Genealogist. I had to squeeze research in while in school and while working full-time. Then I got my first genealogy job and for awhile, it was genealogy all the time. Now I have two kids. I do other people's genealogy constantly but my own? Coming up with ways to do great genealogy, despite all the interruptions, is now mandatory.
Let's bust your brick wall!
Do you keep going off-track while researching your brick wall? Do you need to find more sources to continue your research? The Brick Wall Solution Roadmap can help.

Free Genealogy Help: Mini-post Series

Genealogy can be a confusing subject to learn about online. Genealogists have all different kinds of skill levels and interests so there's a ton of information online.

But genealogy also has its own jargon and that can make finding helpful information difficult where there is so much information to sift through.

In the past, it wasn't so bad because you either hit your local library and got the one (or two or a dozen) genealogy how-to books or you found a local class. In both cases, you were directed down a path to move from beginner concepts to more advanced concepts. There wasn't so much choice and a "path" has an inherent type of navigation (you can go forward or back).

Finding free genealogy information on the Internet is like being dropped in the middle of the ocean with no land in sight and you have to guess which way to go to find what you're looking for.

Some navigational tools would help and that's the point of these mini-posts.

These "mini-posts" are designed to help you get some quick answers and then find what will really help you.

Here's the list of topics (updated as I create more).
