For nearly three decades...
I’ve had the pleasure of conducting Pennsylvania historical and family history research
for people from all over the country, and all around the world. The experience and
reputation I’ve developed has provided me with amazing opportunities: I have appeared
on-air for the Travel Channel;been retained by production teams for Who Do You Think
You Are?,Ancestors in the Attic and other television shows; supplied research for
other writers’ published works; and was the first genealogist called when Philadelphia’s
historic Greenwood Cemetery needed reclamation from the overgrowth that overwhelmed
As much as I’ve enjoyed conducting research, however, my first true love has always
been writing. Over the past few years, three of my books have been purchased and
published by the well-respected History Press, and - as of this writing - a fourth
Additionally, I’m the publisher and editor of several popular historical and entertainment
web sites, and a news site for fans of true crime and mysteries. And so, it is well
past the time when I must fully “retire” from research.
To those of you I’ve had the great pleasure of serving over the years, thank you.
To those of you still looking for assistance, there is good news. This site, PennsylvaniaResearch.com,
is evolving into thepremiere source of news and information for Pennsylvania family
historians and other historical researchers.
Over the next few weeks I will be posting a tremendous variety of authoritative articles
on how, why and where to conduct research in the Keystone State. And, of course,
our incredibly popular Directory of Pennsylvania Genealogical & Historical Societies
will remain the largest, most current free directory on the web. And, as time allows,
I will still try to answer general research questions.
Pennsylvania will always be my home and is, in my humble opinion, the most beautiful
state in the nation. If you are lucky enough to have family here (present or past),
consider it a gift.
