Today, she is a genealogist passionate about genealogy research and sharing the excitement of the pursuit of family history to help people find “their personal connection to history.”
As a marketer, Sharon recognized the market need for up-to-date educational materials related to starting and growing a genealogy-related business. She pitched the idea behind GenBiz Solutions™ to Thomas MacEntee, who took the lead to “run with it.”

Readers are treated to a collection of newspaper articles, family photos, journal articles and other ephemera demonstrating the true pioneering spirit of the founders.
