Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

Genealogy can help you with defining your family legacy and is perfect to explore in midlife. My guest today is Laurie Hermance-Moore and her passion is finding information.

As a genealogist accredited by the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGenSM), Laurie Hermance-Moore helps clients craft their family’s legacy. With thirty years of research experience, she reveals the forgotten families of her clients, ensuring that their stories are uncovered and captured for future generations.  When she’s not working with her clients or serving as a leader in state and national genealogical organizations

Laurie believes that learning about your family history can broaden your midlife perspective. That your legacy should be to leave more than money, and you are the connection between generations.

She defines legacy as “The thoughtful and intentional process of deciding on gifts to share with future generations.”  How beautiful is that? It can be incredibly interesting and rewarding for you and your family, both present and future.
