About This Blog’s Founder

Carolyn Murphy, founder of the Family Tree Quest Blog

Using the Internet persona, Family Tree Gal, Carolyn Murphy has a motto. “In every home, a family tree helps strengthen your posterity.”

Founder of the Family Tree Quest Blog, Carolyn worked as a professional calligrapher for over 20 years. Writing names on family tree charts was a favorite part of her work.

After a series of three car accidents, Carolyn’s ability to write in calligraphy was compromised.  Time was needed to adjust to the lingering physical effects of the accidents.  Her husband, Shawn, proved to be an incredible support during difficult times.  While raising her five children, a commitment to home and family continued to burn deep in her heart. Realizing that self-improvement was continuously needed to keep up with ongoing challenges, she learned, through experience, that principle-centered living led to happiness–in spite of difficulties.

Still desiring to contribute in a meaningful way to those around her, Carolyn published a website, Family Tree Quest, and two family history centered blogs.  Her Family Tree Gal blog focuses on family history and creating positive change in THIS generation for the sake of strengthening one’s family tree.  This blog, http://www.familytreequest.com features genealogy news, research and resources.  Many thanks goes to virtual assistant Lori Wiser who also contributes to updates on this blog.
