Cary Rodriguez, Principal Researcher
I am a professional genealogist with over 10 years of experience in researching, documenting, and writing family histories. I specialize in the southern central states of the United States, where I have traced my own ancestry back to the colonial era. I have a passion for uncovering the stories of my ancestors and helping others do the same.
I have a bachelor’s degree in information management from Oklahoma State University, a Certificate from the ProGen (Professional Genealogy) Study Group, and a Certificate in Genealogical Research from the Center for Professional Education at Boston University. I have also completed several courses and certificates from the National Genealogical Society, and the Association of Professional Genealogists. I am a member of these organizations as well as the Texas State Genealogical Society, and the Oklahoma Genealogical Society. I also serve as a volunteer Board member for the Clayton Library Friends group in support of the Houston Public Library’s Family History Research Center at Clayton Library Campus.
I offer a range of genealogical services, including research, analysis, report writing, proofreading, editing, and consulting. I can help you with any stage of your family history project, from defining your research goals and objectives to presenting your findings in a compelling and professional way. I use various sources and methods to conduct thorough and accurate research, such as online databases, libraries, archives, courthouses, cemeteries, DNA testing, and more. I adhere to the highest standards of ethics and quality in my work and follow the Genealogical Proof Standard in all my reports.
