Thank you for your interest in “Genealogy with Valerie”. My name is Valerie Hughes and I have been pursuing my own Family History for over 20 years. 6 years ago I began a career as a Genealogy professional.
I was not raised around any relatives and my parents barely spoke of their upbringing or family. After my parents were gone I wanted to know more about where I came from, not just for me but for my Children and Grandchildren also. This is the reason that I began my journey to connect with my Ancestors. I love searching for them and I enjoy creating new ways to engage my family in Family History.
I have written 2 books on the subject of Genealogy, see links below to find them on Amazon. I write this blog, I have an Authors Facebook page and I am also on Twitter. I love to connect with other Genealogist and share information and ideas.
When not doing Genealogy, I am an avid photographer, crafter, reader, and bicyclist. I am a wife, mother, and have the best job ever as a Grandmother!
Here are my two books!

ATTENTION: I have just launched my new Blog “Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Faith”. This Blog will feature Christian women who may be considered “ordinary” by most people but they have endured some tremendous hardships in their lives, and with the help of Jesus they have exhibited “extraordinary faith”. I will also be writing devotionals and commentary about problems that we all face. Please join me at http://tinyurl.com/pkqkkkj.
