I have a Bachelor of Journalism (BJ) from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, Columbia, Missouri. I worked in communications for a large national not-for-profit organization in St. Louis and San Antonio.

Currently I’m researching primarily these family branches: Raglands, Dunns, Taylors, Beaches, Ohares, and Buerks. I use the internet–especially ancestry.com–and other secondary sources.

You can find my family hi-stories on these sites

I’m a writer of strong convictions. On The Write Stuff Blog, I hope I can offer you a different point of view.
