About Me


My name is Patricia Stanard and I am the owner/blogger of My Genealogy Obsession.  I have been researching my family history off and on for the past 18 years, but seriously for the past 7 years.

I want to preserve my ancestor’s story but in the most respectful, professional way I can.  I am not a professional genealogist,  but I am obssesed with my family history and  genealogy.  I have my bachelor and master’s degree in Business Administration and I am looking to increase my genealogical education.  I have worked for 14 years for a large city government department in the legal division as a legal secretary.

Personally I am mother to the most beautiful 14-year old daughter and I am married to a wonderful husband who understands my genealogy obsession!  We also just added a new member to our family, our new furbaby, Roxy!!!

Thank you,

Patricia Stanard
