About Elizabeth

As a professional genealogist with deep Maritime roots (230+ years of direct Nova Scotia Loyalist lineage) who now lives in the National Capital Region of Ottawa-Gatineau (straddling both provinces of Ontario and Quebec), I can help you look for your ancestors, either in Canada or the United States.

Decades of research experience—plus a love of heritage, and years of working on my dual Canadian and American family histories—have helped me become an organized, detailed, and thoughtful researcher: an ally to help you face and conquer your genealogy brickwalls and challenges.

Using in-depth methodology, personal know-how of Canadian and American genealogy and its resources (borne of my time as a newspaper columnist, blogger, and author - see the "Published Works" page), as well as my formidable research skills, I am tenacious and undeterred in my efforts to shed light on your questions.

In addition, I produce precise, exacting reports written in accordance with the aims, standards, ethics, and guidelines of the genealogy societies and professional associations to which I belong, and espouse (see the "Memberships" page).

I am active with social media such as Twitter, Facebook, and with my blog - <www.GenealogyCanada.blogspot.com>.
