About the Author
Cherri Melton Flinn developed an interest in genealogy as a child, but never pursued her research until purchasing a home computer and family tree-building software. Through diligence and trial and error, she collected more than 5,000 names and narratives to help complete her own family history. Requests from family and friends prompted Cherri to share her expertise with others. Her first class in online genealogy research, conducted at a local college, filled up immediately, and she will be instructing additional workshops and classes in the future.
