Chip’s interest in genealogy charts began while researching his own family history and it became a means of displaying his family history in a clear graphic manner to bring it to life.  Of equal interest to him is providing genealogy research services and providing a professional genealogy report that is fully sourced with footnotes to authenticate the researched discoveries. His reports include graphics explaining geographic and historic context as well as an ahnentafel chart to graphically describe the ancestral lineage.
