Jennie earned her Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University’s Center for Professional Education in 2016 and she is currently a participant in ProGen Study Group 34. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and serves as registrar of the Susan Woodin Chapter, NSDAR. A fourth generation Washingtonian, great-grandparents on both sides of Jennie’s family were early settlers of North Central Washington.
Jennie became interested in genealogy after discovering an embroidery sampler in an attic trunk that had belonged to her great-grandmother. A determination to learn the life story of the twelve year-old girl who created that sampler in 1840 has lead to a lifelong pursuit of her family’s history.
