Pam Vestal


Pam Vestal is a professional genealogist and speaker who got hooked on genealogy when her daughter grew curious about her wacky paternal ancestors.  To advance her research, Pam took classes, attended conferences and genealogy institutes, watched innumerable lectures, and exchanged information with her peers.  Eventually, after a 20-year writing career, she decided to turn her focus to her longtime love of genealogy and became a professional. Since then, her articles have appeared in the National Genealogical Society Magazine and The Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly, and her lectures take her from coast to coast.  Pam specializes in conducting genealogical research and then transforming that information into illustrated stories that even non-genealogists can enjoy.
