Amanda Hayes, Professional Genealogist

I am a genealogist who’s had a passion for family history since exploring my grandparents homestead on the family’s Century Farm.  A lot has happened since then, including having spent 7 years promoting aviation and military heritage in support of the U.S. Air Force. Now, I’m thrilled to help individuals and families reconnect with their ancestors and understand where they came from. Some say your family genealogy is the greatest mystery novel you will ever read. I agree.

I’m proud to have studied under some of our country’s premier genealogists, receiving my Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University. I use a combination of records, social economics and historical events to portray the lives of ancestors using the Genealogical Proof Standards.

Geographic Specialty: Northeast, Midwest & Southern United States. Europe. 

Member: Association of Professional Genealogists, National Genealogical Society, New England Historic Genealogical Society, Lone Star Chapter APG and various other organizations. I am also “on the clock” working to complete my portfolio for judging from the Board for Certification of Genealogists.
