"If you don't tell your stories, other people will tell their story about you. It's important that we nurture and protect these memories. Things change. Existence means change." ~ Henry Louis Gates

Through her research, Dawnya has been able to connect us with relatives all over the country and to help us open a dialog of communication with some of them. Thank you Dawnya for continuing to help keep this legacy alive for all of us, but especially for our children and grandchildren.

Family Coordinator

About a year ago, I attended a workshop and decided to start researching my family history. I had no idea about how to take on this daunting task. However, by working privately with Dawnya, she reviewed what I had done so far, and recommended various resources that I would have never been aware of without her service. Dawnya is a wealth of information, very patient ( as I had so many questions), and willing to share her personal journey in researching her own family history and how she turned her passion into a professional service that helps people to connect to the past. Therefore, I would highly recommend, Life Journey Genealogy!

I highly recommend Dawnya Lindsey for your genealogy search.  Ms. Lindsey's help proved to be invaluable.  I tried several times on my own and always found myself stuck, but with Ms. Lindsey's help, I have made significant progress.  Her knowledge and expertise have been invaluable.

Taking a DNA test alone can give you some insight into where you come from, however DNA tests alone can't tell you the details and history of your Life Journey.
