Hi! I’m Nicole, and I love collecting and sharing family stories. I’m a former middle school history teacher. I currently volunteer at the Tucson Family History Center, leading the family history storytime for preschoolers each week. My husband and I have 3 sweet children under 6.
I’ve loved family history since age 16, when my family moved two states away and I didn’t make the volleyball team at the new high school. As I explored and experimented in genealogy, a whole new world opened to me. I discovered that “[researching ancestors makes] you feel wonderful!” (Richard G. Scott). I love researching and teaching others about it.
Hi, I’m Diana. I’m an Accredited GenealogistⓇ professional, teacher, writer, and speaker. I have fourteen years of research experience and hold a credential for genealogy research through the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGen). My area of expertise is the United States Gulf South Region which includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.
I graduated from Brigham Young University Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Education. A lifelong learner and educator I combine my passion for teaching and genealogy in numerous ways. Speaking at conferences and teaching youth and adults how to find their family is very rewarding. I have helped many extend their pedigrees and solve family history mysteries. I currently serve as a family history consultant in my LDS ward with the goal to help as many people as possible feel successful in family history. With my new position as presentation specialist for ICAPGen, I will be educating genealogists interested in the accreditation process.
I am a member of the National Genealogical Society, the Utah Genealogical Society, and the Association of Professional Genealogists. As the the principal researcher for Family Locket Genealogists, I specialize in U.S. research and genealogy consulting & coaching. My proximity to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City gives me access to their fabulous record collections.
