Jessie Boutilier Ross was born in 1982 and has been interested in genealogy since she can remember. After a billion questions to her family, she was put in touch with a second cousin and her first paternal lineage. Since the age of fourteen, Jessie has been researching, building, and sourcing her family tree with various online resources as well as becoming acquainted with many various archives and museums. In July of 2015 she took her first autosomal DNA test and since has been spending about 20 hours a week on average researching and triangulating DNA to learn more about her heritage and ancestors. For the past two years, she has been working extremely hard to figure out her McKenzie ancestors who perplex her the most. Jessie has helped people from around the world in finding records and understanding how genetic genealogy works, especially with the use of GEDMatch.com. She is a homeschooling mother of 4 children, a military wife, and lives in Greenwood, Nova Scotia.
