Jenny brick wall profile picture

I have been an Accredited Genealogist® for seventeen years, with more than twenty years of experience in professional research. In addition to my degree in family history-genealogy, I hold an advanced degree as well. I have performed on-site genealogy research in Italian churches, archives, and courthouses throughout Italy, as well as countless courthouses, libraries, and private collections across the United States.

I have access to many of Italy’s microfilmed birth, death, and marriage records via FamilySearch microfilm centers, as well as their scanned film collections. I am also fluent in Italian and can translate difficult-to-read older records, as well as correspond with record repositories in Italy for my clients. I also use my language skills to reach out to distant cousins in Italy, which has resulted in some incredible family reunions. I am a resident of southern Virginia, from where I commute to various records repositories in Virginia and the Carolinas for the occasional US research case, in addition to my work for Italian American clients.
