My name is Nicole Cohn and I am a professional genealogist, researcher, and writer living and working near Seattle, WA. After more than a decade of researching projects as a copywriter I made the leap into genealogy in 2016.

To be able to solve family mysteries for people who never thought they would know the truth is one of the great honors of my life. For me, the past is very much alive. New documents and revelations are made every day as more and more records are digitized and added to an ever-increasing network of genealogy sites. Even still, so much is offline, waiting to be discovered. I relish the chance to access off-line records just as much as I enjoy digging through the Internet to find the answers for my clients.
