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 have completed the Boston University Online Genealogy Certificate course.
I’ve worked in the internet industry in software and have been a 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fascination of genealogy and developing advanced search techniques and methodologies to carve important clues out of historical documents.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.
