A beautiful morning at Union Dale Cemetery in Pittsburgh.

I enjoy collaborating with clients and helping them understand their unique family history through customized research and analysis. Contact me for a free 30-minute consultation and to discuss your specific research and/or presentation needs. Services offered by LCD Genealogy include (but are not limited to):

Customized Genealogy Research

Traditional research and analysis of records and documents to answer your specific genealogical or family history question – from building a basic family tree to more in-depth research of complex families. Research projects can focus on a specific branch or surname, or concentrate on advancing your own genealogy research. All research is compiled into a detailed report of findings, including explanations and conclusions and sources consulted. Examples of reports and charts are available on my Work Samples page.

Lectures and Webinars

In-person and virtual programs are available for genealogical and historical societies, libraries and other groups. See my Lectures page for topics and details.
