C. Lynn Andersen’s career in genealogical research started in 1985 when she got hooked on genealogy from researching her US Southern roots. Her ancestors migrated to Kentucky in the early 1800s through Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
She began taking clients professionally in 1992, and received an accreditation through the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists, ICAPGen (TM) in 2006. ICAPGen, is a professional credentialing organization dedicated to testing an individual’s competence in genealogical research. She is accredited in the US Upper South Region (Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia) and the US Southeast Region (Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, and South Carolina).
Although she specializes in US Southern region research, client research has led to researching records from various places in the United States, and countries including Australia, Ireland, Romania (South Russia), Würtemburg, and Sweden. Her most exciting success story was solving an Ireland research problem using autosomal DNA to prove the family links with no paper trail.
She was accepted as a Daughter of the American Revolution in 2016 She has recently authored a book titled: My Patriot Ancestors of the American Revolution and Their Stories (Watch for it on Lulu.com for availability).
