Natalie Cottrill - Search help for your Family Tree


Natalie Cottrill

Professional Experience

As a professional genealogist, I have nearly ten years of experience researching at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I primarily research family lineages from the Mid-Atlantic, Mid-West, and New England areas as well as in Virginia, West Virginia and Kentucky.

I have spent a great deal of time studying the migration patterns of families as they moved into the Mid-West from the states to the south and east.  I have considerable experience problem solving and documenting difficult lineages. My experience has included the compilation of thousands of lineages from the colonial period to the 1920s. I have posted a sample lineage research report on this site.

Personal Genealogical Research

My personal genealogical research experience began in 1983 when I began working on my own family lineages. My cousin, Elsie Rarey, piqued my curiosity with some research that she had done on my family tree and soon, the curiosity turned into a profession! You can view links to some of my personal genealogical research on My Ancestors page.  You may want to view some of my research online, too.

In 1997, I published a book entitled The Ancestors and Descendants of Willis Calvin and Clara (Woodruff) McManus


In 1985, I obtained a B.A. in music at Baldwin-Wallace College Conservatory in Berea, Ohio.  I pursued concurrent minors in mathematics, computer science and philosophy.  Then in 1988, I completed graduate work in Missouri at the St. Louis Conservatory of Music and was awarded a Graduate Diploma in Oboe Performance.


I am a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Salt Lake City Chapter of the APG and I follow the APG Code of Ethics.  I also belong to the Utah Genealogical Association.
