I have been chasing my ancestors through Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina for many years and hopefully I’ve helped a few friends and cousins along the way.
I just recently completed the Boston University Online Genealogy Certificate course and I’m gearing up to attempt CG certification.
I’ve worked in the internet industry in software and product manager for companies including CNET, Webshots and Excite@Home. I have a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Purdue University, where I also taught Computer Science for 8 years.
My passion for history and computers merged into a lifelong fascination of genealogy and developing advanced search techniques to carve important clues out of historical documents.
I am a Product Manager at Ancestry.com and I write the Ancestry Anne column for Ancestry.com.
Lately, I’ve been focused on how we can do more than collect the data. I want to bring my ancestors to life.
