Hi, I’m Kelly O’Donnell.

I’m a professional genealogist with a passion to help people connect with their family history. I specialize in research in England, Scotland, Ireland, the United States, and British Columbia, as well as extensive experience in West Virginia and Virginia. I love helping others learn the stories of their ancestors and hope to help you!


Thanks to Kelly and her dedicated time. I have found a lot of information about my father's side of the family. It's been a treat to work with her. She's willing and very thorough, making sure there's "proof" that backs what she finds. She goes above and beyond. Thanks for finding the lost ones and bringing them all home! We highly recommend her and her services

 We hired Kelly to do research on our house. She far exceeded our expectations with what she found. She personalized it and made it feel like we were part of the story of our house. She is a wonderful storyteller. When we met her for dinner so she could present her findings, it felt like we were transported back in time to the beginning of the story of our house. If you are curious about your home and the previous people that lived there, hire her. You will not be disappointed.

Above all, I was impressed with Kelly's consistent dedication to excellence in her work. I would highly recommend Kelly.
