“The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.” – Dorothy Parker
Let me introduce myself: I am a retired teacher who has been on a genealogy journey for over 20 years.
It began with curiosity about my family’s history and was nearly derailed by the vast quantity of resources and information.
When I realized that trial and error was a tough way to learn, my teaching instincts told me to share these learning experiences, both good and bad, in the hope that others would not repeat my mistakes. This inspired me to form my own business, Hunting Down History to provide professional genealogical research and educational services.
Several years ago a small group in my town of Holland, Michigan wanted more education about genealogical research, so to meet their needs I formed the Genealogy Study Group.
