Information about Debbie Spero

During the past 31 years I have had the opportunity to help clients establish Revolutionary War ancestors to gain membership in the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), help African American clients trace their ancestry, help clients with early Tennessee connections move their families westward to Illinois and beyond and eastward to Virginia, North Carolina, and other beginnings, help other clients to prove or disprove "family traditions" through Tennessee county records, and look for "elusive ancestors" and try to break down "genealogy brick walls" for other clients.

Though I cannot claim to solve every client's genealogy puzzle, I will thoroughly search all records available to me for the time period in question. I began genealogy as a hobby when in high school, and fell in love with "the hunt" for my own ancestors. I carry that same enthusiasm into each client's case and enjoy both the search and the thrill of discovery and figuring out the puzzles of genealogy.
