I have been doing genealogy for 30 years. My Great Aunt Ella introduced me to this fascinating adventure when I was a teenager and boy did I get hooked. She inspired me and taught me the importance of my roots and where I came from. I am proud to be a genealogist. I also have a criminal justice degree so the detective in me just has to search for all those treasure's out there.

Dorcus Chester is a new find of mine. I was tickled pink to find her plus the photo on Ancestry.com.
Dorcus was born 1 November 1637 in Wethersfield, Hartford, Massachusetts, died 15 February 1712 in Billerica, Middlesex, Massachusetts. She married Rev. Samuel Whiting Jr. Date unknown. They had children.
Dorcus is from a long line of weathy "Chester men" that owned many acres of land in England and in America.
