Have you ever asked yourself ...

  • How have I become who I am?

  • What did my ancestors think, feel, or worry about?

  • Where did my family come from and how does it shape me?

  • What are my family's secrets? Why were they kept?

  • Who in my past am I most alike?

  • How did historical events shape the personalities of my forbearers?

  • Where can I learn about my family stories from historical documents? Where can I find those documents?

  • What will I teach my children about our roots?

I certainly have!

As a professional psychologist I am interested in other peoples' stories. As an amateur genealogist I am interested in my own. I hope The Psychogenealogist will inspire you to learn about and tell your own family story. I draw heavily on my own  genealogical story as a guide.
