|About Aunt Lizzie
The original Aunt Lizzie was a guardian of her family's story. She saved a collection of memorabilia that helped her nieces and nephews piece together their history and heritage.
I believe every family has a narrative, and we all want to know our own tale. Maybe it will be an epic, maybe only a short story. But there is something to be learned about our place in history, and I can help you on that road to discovery.

|About Nora Galvin
I was born and raised in Cincinnati,Ohio, and have lived in several cities in that state. In addition I have lived in 2 cities in Virginia. New England has been my home for over
I am a descendent of nine immigrants from eight counties in Ireland who braved the Atlantic between 1848 and 1905 and made their way to Cincinnati via New Orleans, New York and Boston. I have a strong interest in Irish genealogy and immigration.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree (Biology) from The Ohio State University and a Masters of Arts (Liberal Studies) from Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut. I have been a secondary-school science teacher and a research scientist at a major pharmaceutical company where one of my roles was using DNA as a drug discovery tool. I bring a scientist's intrinsic curiosity and attention to detail to my genealogical research.
