A freelance writer of books based on historical research, Nancy has 20 years' experience in archival, historical and genealogical research with specialization in land records, gravestone studies, the Illinois and Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor, Choteau and Teton County, Montana, and the Rocky Mountain Front. Her business publishes books and booklets about Northeastern Illinois and Montana history.

Nancy researched and prepared the nomination papers for two buildings subsequently placed on the National Register of Historic Places, one in Illinois and one in Montana.

She published two books on Catholic history in Illinois, (see Contents) and authored five books on local Montana history (see home page.)

After 24 years spent residing near the Illinois and Michigan Canal, Nancy and her husband moved to Choteau, Montana, where she continues to do historical and genealogical research. She is an award-winning semi-retired reporter for the Choteau Acantha newspaper and volunteer-hosts webpages on the Illinois and Michigan Canal, Teton County, Montana; and a nonprofit group, the Friends of Old Agency on the Teton Inc.
