Connie was very thorough and prompt. She did a lot of digging and explored many avenues. Eventhough the original goal was not attained in this search, there were a few good pieces of information that might help the picture become just a little bit clearer. Plus she reported on the process of her search, so that I won't have to go over some of the same things again. This part of the family tree has been most difficult for me to find (of all the branches) myself, and I appreciate her help.

Connie completed a test project with us as a final step in setting up her provider page on the site. As we went through the process, her replies were prompt, her questions were thoughtful, and her sample report (written for another purpose and uploaded as a place holder) was clear and easy to follow. We're pleased to welcome her to Genlighten! Cyndy, Genlighten Support

Connie White is a fellow volunteer at a local historic site. We have worked together as docents while conducting tours through the historic house, and we're also in the process of putting together a small book about the house and the family who built it. Connie has traveled to the state capitol to do research for this project and as a service to the city and county history museums in our area. As far as I know she did all of this travel and at least 3 days of intensive research at her own expense. I've been very impressed with the quantity and quality of her work. I believe Connie is a very forthright and honest person, and always does her very best to be accurate when researching and writing about historical information..

As a probate attorney practicing in Florida and New York I was fortunate to have been introduced to Connie White as a genealogical researcher, willing to research the family tree of New England family who migrated to Florida around the turn of the last century. In order to establish that several generations later, their descendants who did not leave Last Wills, passed their homestead property Connie documenting for me with vital documents in evidentiary form that their grand children were entitled to inherit the residential homestead.
And then, Connie outdid herself when she took on for me, what a New York court found to be an exhaustive and diligent search of another family's family-tree, when the vital documents there involved included but was not limited to New York City's huge archieves that most researchers located beyond the boarders of NYS would have no idea how to navigate, But Connie accepted the challenge and satisfied that court as well. - I would highly recommend/refer Connie White for a similar challenge.
