She is a lecturer, educator and writer who enjoys helping others understand a wide variety of genealogical issues, including the interplay between genealogy and the law.

Judy was also just voted a Gold Medal Genealogical Rockstar - described as “those who give “must attend” presentations at family history conferences or as webinars. Who, when you see a new family history article or publication by that person, makes it a must buy.” Who is it, he asked, where you “hang on their every word on a blog, podcast or newsgroup, or follow avidly on Facebook or Twitter?”. Read more about this award on her blog
