About Us

Experience

 My name is Derek J Blount and I have been researching my family tree for over 30 years. My genealogy research can now trace our family back before the Norman Conquest (1066 A.D.). I have extensive experience with a multitude of ancestry sites and historical websites.  This is my seventh year as a professional genealogist. I have traveled extensively around the U.S., Canada, and England in search of ancestors. I lecture regionally and nationally on various genealogical topics.  I am also a researcher for the Burton Historical Collection in Detroit.

Education

 I hold a B.S. in Management from Oakland University and have taken additional course work from the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh.  I have also attended genealogical workshops at numerous national genealogical conferences.

Organization Affiliations

I serve on the board of two genealogical societies and hold membership in an additional nine organizations. I also serve as a delegate to the Michigan Genealogical Council and the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS).  I serve on the committee for records access in FGS.  I am a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and the Society of Genealogists in London.
