Genealogy_tree_of_the_Zawisza_familyIn an effort to collate and make available some basic, albeit randomly structured, coaching & technologies, this page provides centralized links to Genealogical Tools I have created, articles I have written, and genealogical heuristics, tools & technologies.

Like many of you, I enjoy sharing my thoughts, ideas, and lessons-learned in the hopes that they might be useful.  The process of writing things down also helps me remember things- and I can use a lot of help in that arena!  I also hope these thoughts might save you, our reader, a bit of time! Having said that I have to emphasize, I can make no guarantees (expressed or implied)!

I hope you find these items to be a useful adjunct in your genealogical efforts. If there are topics, tools, or other items you wish to see here, please use our contact page to let me know.
