My Family Footprints, a genealogy research company, is devoted to helping people find more information about their family history.   This is done through a variety of research methods, both online and in-person.

My name is Jo Zurwell, owner and lead genealogist of My Family Footprints.  I am a general genealogist with specialties in French-Canadian and New England research, but I can help with most nationalities. 

After 20 years in the corporate world, I have found my love for researching family histories. About ten years ago, I started researching my own family’s history, after the passing of my parents. 

I discovered my passion for research and for helping others find their own family’s history.  I have enjoyed helping clients follow their family’s footprints all over New England, England, Ireland, Germany, Canada, and France. 

I look forward to helping you find where your family’s footprints will take us.
