Hi. My name is Jenny Findsen. I am a full-time History student at the University of Washington in Seattle paying my way through college by helping people connect with their ancestors.

From Passion to Profession.
I was introduced to genealogy by my mother who was the family historian. In 1998 when I realized I was about to bring the next generation of our family into the world, I decided to take up the historian torch, ever since genealogy has remained my number one passion.

Sixteen years later, I decided to go back to college to earn my degree. It was time to take my love for genealogy and history to a new level turning it into my profession. Only one more year until I obtain my bachelor’s degree. This summer I will be working towards certification as a professional genealogist.

Why Genealogist Journal?
The Genealogist Journal is dedicated to sharing genealogical finds and helping others connect with their ancestry.

In 2012, I started the Genealogist Journal as a way to share genealogy with family members. Since then it has grown to provide genealogy research services, helpful hints, and tips for family historians on a budget.

I adhere to the Genealogical Standards and the Genealogist’s Code written by the Board For Certification Of Genealogists in all my genealogical research.

If you are interested in my genealogy research services, please read my research services page.

Do not forget to check out my Genealogy on a Budget page for the latest genealogical hints and tips.
