When Terri was growing up, she loved to work any kind of puzzles - jigsaw puzzles, word find puzzles, logic puzzles - she loved them all! She also loved to get lost in a really good mystery book. Now that she is an adult, she has added a love of genealogy to her "passions" list. She wondered who her ancestors were, where they lived and what kind of work did they do. Who were they?? Those mystery books and puzzle books have come in handy!
She has spent countless hours researching her own family history as well as her husband's family history and would now like to help you trace your family. lf you are wondering about your ancestors as well, but don't have the time to do your own research, Terri would Iove to do it for you. She would also be glad to help you get started doing your own research if you want to do it yourself but don't know where to start. Stuck at a brick wall? She'd love to see if she could help you break through it.
One of the most interesting projects she has completed was putting together a booklet featuring some prominent families that had each lived in one home at a certain period in time and the contributions they made to the town the home was located in, Excelsior Springs, Missouri. Do you ever wonder who owned your home before you did? What kind of work they did? How many children they had? Terri would be glad to find out for you!
Terri has attended the KC Genealogy Conference and is a member of the National Genealogical Society, Excelsior Springs Genealogical Society, and Ray County Genealogical Society. She strives to spend some time each day doing something tied to genealogy to increase her knowledge and research skills. Terri is available for consultation or advice and will travel to Midwest Genealogy Center for meeting or to research. She is also familiar and comfortable with Census records, Ancestry.com, Findagrave & Missouri Digital Heritage.
