Melanie Frick, MLS has been blogging at Homestead Genealogy since 2013. She is an Iowa native, but now lives in Washington state. She is a member of Association of Professional Genealogists, National Genealogical Society, and the NextGen Genealogy Network.
Melanie writes, “In sharing stories about my ancestors, I am able to document my research while connecting with kin. I often write about immigrant ancestors and those who claimed homesteads throughout the Midwest, and I occasionally touch on how DNA has influenced my research. In addition, I very often highlight and analyze old photographs from my personal collection, as well as orphaned photographs from antique shops.”
Some blog posts include:
- Finding Homes for Two Orphan Photographs
- The Unexpected Witness: An Application of a Woman Homesteader
- Johann Wiese and a DNA Connection

Happy Blogiversary Melanie!
