Bio for Judith Brooks
Find Dem Bones  

 Judy is the wife of North County Scots Chaplain Bill Brooks and has been researching both her own and her husband's ancestry since 1995 when he began looking for his tartan and proof of his Scottish heritage.
As both families were in the United States in Colonial times, she has done extensive research in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and Nebraska which has led her to additional research in Ireland and Scotland.

 She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, National Genealogical Society, Southern California Genealogical Society, Nebraska Genealogical Society and an active member of the Carlsbad San Diego North County Genealogical Society.

 Judy has experience researching various libraries, county court houses, cemeteries, historical societies, the National Archives, DAR, and the Library of Congress for her own family research as well as for clients.
Her philosophy is that there is so much more to our ancestry than just the historical dates and places.

 Finding the history of the time and place and information about the life and times of our ancestors brings full meaning to our heritage.
