Are you ready to save your ancestors?

My name is Sheila Thayer and I want to help YOU preserve your precious family memories.

With 30 years of Genealogy Research, 12 years as a Research Strategist and a degree in Library Technology under my belt I understand the importance of preserving your family artifacts.  I started The Genealogy Dames in 2015 to help others discover their lost ancestors and quickly found that I was collecting box  after box  of artifacts.  Pictures and bibles from Grandmas attic, birth/death/marriage certificates from various courthouses.  And all this was added to my collection of family pictures.

It was in the middle of a 4-day scanathon, digging through boxes of old slides and fading pictures when I thought Everyone needs to digitize their memories before they’re lost.

Why should others purchase special scanners and spend days upon days scanning their photos and documents? I have the knowledge and the equipment to save you from the frustration and time sink. You can better spend your time researching your ancestors.

Preservation and organization of family history make me happy!

Whatever your needs or questions about preserving your precious family memories are, I am here to listen and help you solve them.
