About

Jenny Tonks, MA, AG®

I have been an Accredited Genealogist® for seventeen years, with more than twenty years of experience in professional research. I hold a degree in family history as well as an advanced degree; I have performed on-site research in Italian churches, archives, and courthouses throughout “il bel paese,” as well as countless courthouses, libraries, private collections, and archives across the United States.

I am a resident of southern Virginia, from where I commute to various records repositories in Virginia and the Carolinas, in addition to my work corresponding with archives in Europe. I also have access to many of Italy’s microfilmed birth, death, and marriage records via FamilySearch microfilm centers, as well as their scanned film collections. I am fluent in Italian and correspond with Italian record repositories often for my clients, in addition to reaching out to distant cousins in Italy for assistance in identifying ancestors or re-establishing contact with family abroad.
