Welcome to my site, I’m Andrea Avery.

Andrea_Avery3I’ve been a genealogist for over 40 years, since I was a girl and would sit with my “Nana” to hunt our family tree. I would listen to her family stories and ancestors became real to me. Nana and I were lucky—we had the genealogy notes of her mother—my great-grandmother—to start with. It must be in the blood!

As an adult I took this passion for research to a professional level. As a West Texan, it was a logical step to use my genealogy skills in the oil business as a petroleum landman. Later, when I relocated to the Austin, Texas area, I became a professional genealogist. These two careers complimented each other: land work taught me about land research and probate, which are so helpful in genealogy research and genealogy taught me how to follow documentary trails to find mineral landowners.

If I can help you with either a genealogy project or a land title project, please contact me. Feel free to explore my site. Enjoy!

MY BIRD NAMED ENZA: If you have an ancestor who dies in 1918-19, you may want to explore that the cause of death was the influenza ("Spanish flu"). It killed over a half a million in the US, and 30 million worldwide. This is a great background piece on what happened. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/influenza/
