Richard (Chip) Melick

Richard (Chip) Melick has been a professional genealogist since 1994 providing genealogy research services tracing genealogy by the hundreds throughout New England, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, the Ohio River Valley, Ontario, the mid‐West, Rocky Mountain Region and the West.

Although his roots are in New England, he has lived in Colorado since the mid-1980s.  In addition to his extensive research throughout New England, he has provided genealogy research services for clients located throughout the United States from the east coast to the west coast to include California, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah as well as England.

Chip’s interest in genealogy charts began while researching his own family, and it became a way to portray his family history in a clear graphic manner.  Of equal interest to him is providing genealogy research services and providing a professional genealogy report.  Chip views this as another important means of portraying the family history that brings it to life.  His reports include graphics explaining geographic and historic context, and even a small chart has a way of finding its way into the genealogy reports.

He is a member of The Colorado Genealogical Society, the National Genealogical Society, Association of Professional Genealogists, a member and volunteer for findagrave.com, and a guest speaker.
