Dig into your family's genealogy with local genealogist and author Donna Gawell. Discover how to find important records for immigration and naturalization, "jump across the pond" to research European records, locate the towns and villages that could lead you to your long lost European cousins, and travel to the lands of your ancestors. About the Author
Genealogist and author, Donna Gawell has traced her Ohio and Massachusetts roots to Sweden, England and Poland, found over ten sets of forgotten European cousins and then traveled to meet them on three different "trips of a lifetime." Her family history trips -- similar to what you might view on "Who Do You Think You Are?" -- were accomplished without the assistance of paid genealogists or travel companies.
Donna is the author of Travel Back to Your Roots
, In the Shadow of Salem
, and The ABC's of Crime and Punishment in Puritan New England
. She has also written journal articles on these topics for professional and genealogy organizations. Donna lives in Westerville, Ohio with her husband Mark.
