I seek to preserve legacies by documenting the history of people, families, businesses, and organizations. This passion ("Make History By Preserving It") is rooted in the idea of passing on traditions and stories from the past to inform and educate those in the future. And when it comes to conducting research for litigation support, I want to find the truth that is typically buried deep in the historical record.
