- The In-Depth GenealogistCreative Director, present
Shannon currently resides in Virginia with her family and pampered malamute. She earned her BS in Biology from Indiana University, with the aspiration of becoming a genetic counselor. After the birth of her first child, she resigned from her job in a quality control laboratory to stay at home. Since January of 2011 she has enjoyed uncovering the facts that go with the family stories told to her as a child. Thus becoming in her husband’s words “the destroyer of family myths."
She has a personal blog called Trials and Tribulations of a Self-Taught Family Historian http://tntfamilyhistory.blogspot.com/ where she talks about her discoveries in pursing her family history and anything else that pops up. You can find Shannon on Facebook www.facebook.com/TntFamilyHistory and on Twitter @tntfamhist.
