Story
Tagline
I Yam What I Yam.
Introduction
Jirene is not my real name (Heaven forbid if it was!), but I go by JireneGen (aka Jirene's Genealogy). I am a Litigation Paralegal by day, genealogy/family history detective by night.  I love volunteering at the Phoenix Family History Library, and have been its newsletter editor since July 2010.  I am a 5th generation Arizonan, and proud of it!
Bragging rights
I think I am pretty funny (well, in my own mind), I can burp continuously, and I can tie a cherry stem with my tongue. If those aren't bragging rights, I don't know what you'd call them! I am pretty good at researching (comes with my paralegal trade), and I love solving genealogy mysteries. I also love dogs, and my hubby! (Can't leave him out if I mention the dogs.)
