My name is Karynne (kuh-RINN) Moses, and I started Moses Genealogy in January of 2019. This business is about people and the impact we have on each other. With Moses Gen, we work together to create goals and make your past come alive while giving you the time you need to make your own difference in the world.

German and Portuguese family history came into my life through a process. My passion for German was ignited several years ago when I started learning the language at school. It is out of my love for German that my passion for family history grew. My command of the language made it easy to learn the old handwriting and search German records, both in the United States and abroad.

In 2015, I had the opportunity to spend fifteen months in Brazil. After my trip, I returned to my family history research and realized that I could make a meaningful contribution to Portuguese research, so I set out to learn the ins and outs. I am steadily increasing my knowledge of the available resources.

My experience as a travel guide for Alpenwild has also come in handy as we work together to develop family history tours for families with German and Swiss-German roots. Our first tour in June of 2019 was a great success, and our clients were delighted to learn about their ancestral homeland, the people who paved the way for them, and even meet living family members in Switzerland!

One of the greatest things about running my own business is the flexibility. We start with your goals and make a plan that works for you. I look forward to helping you find your roots!
