The Search

I want to introduce you to two imaginary friends of mine. Bethanne Nichols is a professional genealogist. Lacy Barnes is a beginning family historian. We're going to follow these 2 ladies on their search for Lacy's family.

Bethanne owns and runs The Searcher, a small shop in Fremont, OH. She also has a website.

Lacy is a young woman searching for her family. Her mother passed away when Lacy was only 2 years old. She didn't know her father. She knows his name, but he was out of the picture before she was born. Lacy's grandmother and a maiden aunt raised her. They both passed away last year leaving her with no known living relatives.

Most people have more of a starting point than we have here, but the basic procedures are the same no matter how much information you already have.

We'll start Lacy's quest in my next post.
