About Me

Pauline C Merrick

I hold a BSBA in Accounting, and have retired from a 30 year career in the business world. While employed there, I spent much time studying methods of genealogical research, attending classes and seminars, enjoying genealogical conferences, and learning through hours and hours of research in libraries and archives.

I started taking client work in 2014, also submitting articles to journals, and published a full genealogical work in 2015. My experience lies mainly in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York research, and making the most of online resources. Interpretation and correlation of records is key to proving a family line, and a skill I have much experience in. DNA for genealogy has fascinated me for several years, and I have planned DNA research and assisted others in interpreting their results.
