About Colleen B. Mac Farlane

I’ve been a genealogy enthusiast for several years. Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I’ll never forget that first day when I looked at a picture of my great grandmother, Monica, her husband, Henry, and their five children. Within one day, I was off to the races, researching my maternal side in Chaska, Minnesota.
