Jamie - Legacy Tree Genealogists Researcher

Jamie has loved exploring family trees since she sat at her Aunt Dorothy's knee and thumbed through brown photos, faded letters, and ragged family group sheets. After teaching English and drama for 24 years, she took some time off to document her own tree and complete one-name research projects for the Tannahills of Scotland from earliest records in the 1600s until 1900, and the Sawdeys in the United States from the immigrant ancestor in 1638 down to the present time. Research is much more than a job; it is an engrossing hobby. When not researching, Jamie loves practicing her language skills.

Jaye - Legacy Tree Genealogists Researcher

Jaye developed a fascination with history and genealogy very early. As a child, he devoured entire history textbooks the weekend after they were assigned rather than impatiently waiting for the story to unfold over the entire year. He also learned many a tale at the knee of his great-grandfather who had served in World War I, and whose own father had reputedly piloted boats on the Missouri River before the Civil War. With the stories of the past at the forefront of his mind, Jaye delved into discovering his family's past while still in high school, and later decided to major in history in college. Having completed both a bachelor's and master's degree in history, the latter with a specialization in War & Society, Jaye embarked on a career in investigations and research. He worked as a private investigator and title abstractor before becoming a professional genealogist.

Hailing from the Midwest--the crossroads of America, Jaye is very comfortable with reconstructing the history of families from a wide variety of national and ethnic origins. He greets each challenging research question presented by our clients as another opportunity to add a new chapter to the endlessly fascinating story of the human endeavor.

Jim has earned a reputation as an author, columnist and lecturer specializing in Germans, Pennsylvania and newspapers - the last in part because he was a first-career newspaper copy editor.

He's happy to return to his editing roots with Legacy Tree Genealogists.
