About me

Industry Law
Occupation Litigation Paralegal, Electronic Trial Specialist
Location Phoenix, Arizona, United States
Introduction Jirene is a nickname. I'm a Yuman being, a "Yuma Criminal," and a graduate of Northern Arizona University. I am a "tride and true" Arizonan. I am a Trial Consultant and Paralegal Supervisor by day, and a genealogist by night. The "genealogy bug" alighted me in 1988 while digitizing my Mom’s genealogy research using my DOS computer (I’m a techno geek as well). I took genealogy classes and began conducting my own research, but mostly documenting what my Mom had found. Then I married an Englishman, and started from scratch researching his ancestry. Some 800+ ancestors later, my husband has to sometimes remind me to join the living every now and then. I am a Family History Consultant since 2005 with the Phoenix Family History Library (formerly Ashland Branch Library), and since July 2010 the Newsletter Editor of its publication “The News Leaf.” I also train on various software programs in my "real" job, and enjoy teaching on Advance Google Research for genealogy. I have two blogs: Jirene's Genealogy Tips (where I share genealogy research tid bits) and Jirene’s Genealogy Treasures (my family histories and genealogies). All I need is more hours in the day!
Interests Family History (genealogy), Wally (my husband), my wonderful family, our wacky ancestors, the Law, America, Arizona, England, furry creatures from the dog world, computing, art, music, and almost anything funny.
