Sara is a native Virginian with copious family roots north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Her current projects include a descendant study of all the descendants of Jonathan Richardson of Livonia, New York, and the Patrick Mahan family of Indiana County, Pennsylvania, though she deviates from these projects quite a bit to study other families.
