Willowtree Research was established in 2013. My name is Laura Street Chaplin, owner / genealogist. With 40 years of both personal and professional research experience, I love working with students and clients to unlock and explore their family's unique lives, placing them in a wider historical context. I adhere to professional genealogical standards and ethics as promoted by APG (Association of Professional Genealogists), BCG (Board for Certification of Genealogists), and NGS (National Genealogical Society).
Teaching is in my blood! I offer group presentations on a large variety of topics, personal one-on-one tutoring sessions (working on a topic of your choice), or traditional client research developed around a specific research goal. Research projects can be large or small, depending on the client's desired budget. I can also function as a personal historian at your next family reunion or gathering, collecting stories and information from all interested family members and then organizing this material into a family heritage book or creative media presentation.

- you hope to apply to a lineage society
- you're putting together a family heritage book
- or have something else in mind ...
I'd love to hear from you. I will do my best to help you reach your research goals - I truly care about my students and clients!
