About Polly

My interest in genealogy was passed down from my grandmother to my mother to me. I worked on my own family first, while also studying modern techniques and practices. I began taking clients as a professional genealogist in 1998. In 2009 I received my credential as a Certified Genealogist® and renewed in 2014 and again in 2019.

My own ancestry is half Irish, half early New England and New York. I belong to the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, National Society Daughters of the Union, and Women Descendants of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst in 1978 with a major in French. I learned Italian when living in Rome, Italy from 1979-1983.

My husband and I have three grown sons and a lovely cat and we live in Central Massachusetts.
