The Joyful Genealogist


Kimberly's love for genealogy and family history began over  20 years ago.

She began researching her southern ancestry so that she could share it with her children. She had no idea what she was getting into!

The more she researched the more she wanted to know, but like most of us who are just starting our genealogy journey, she made many mistakes. Now with over 20 years of research experience and having continued her education through the National Institute for Genealogical Studies she not only researches her own history but others as well. 

She not only offers research assistance but has expanded her business to include genealogical workshops and lectures as well as transcription and document retrieval services.

She has served as the President of the Woodford County, IL Historical and Genealogical Society as well as the Chairman of the Archives at the Mennonite Heritage Center in Metamora, IL. 

She is also a member of the APG, National Genealogical Society, Illinois State Genealogical Society and the North Carolina Genealogical Society.
