Ancestral Journeys

Genealogical research and thoughts

  • David W. Suddarth

    Welcome to Ancestral Journeys, my genealogy research blog. Researching one's ancestors is like taking a journey back through time. Each of our ancestors have a story and those stories are waiting to be told. I hope to do that, as well as outline research methods and other information relating to genealogy and family history. Even if we do not share the same ancestry, I hope you will find some of the discussion and ideas of benefit. For my complete profile, click on the 'About' tab at the top of the page.

I am a genealogical and family history researcher living in St. Paul, MN.  Originally from the Chicago area, I have researched my own family’s history for about 12 years and enjoy helping others begin researching their own.

I serve as the Secretary for the Minnesota Genealogical Society and on the Education Committee.  In addition, I am one of the instructors for the Minnesota Genealogical Society’s Beginning Genealogy course.  I am a member of  many other genealogical societies and organizations, including various other state societies, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, the National Genealogical Society and the Association of Professional Genealogists.
