Meet the Founder

Valerie Elkins name

Valerie’s journey into family history began with a captivating tale from her childhood. Her great-great-grandmother claimed to be an Indian princess, a story that ignited Valerie’s imagination and curiosity. Growing up in a family that moved like migratory birds, she clung to this story, spending countless hours reading about horses and Native Americans, ready to take her rightful place on the throne if her tribe ever called.

Though she eventually discovered that there is no such thing as Indian royalty, by then, it was too late – Valerie was already hooked on family history.

Today, Valerie is a professional genealogist, family history and legacy expert, presenter, and writer. With over two decades of experience and training, she empowers others to discover the joy of knowing their family stories and preserving them in creative and meaningful ways.
