Welcome to Brick by Brick Genealogy. Are you a seasoned researcher who has hit a brick wall? Or a beginner who is overwhelmed by the results of your research? Maybe you are brand new to genealogy and don’t know where to start? Then you’ve come to the right place. Through systems and processes I help new and beginning genealogists get organized and build their family history. I help intermediate genealogists sort through their research and tear down their brick walls. In addition, I offer a variety of other services for genealogists of all levels.
My name is Karin Coppernoll and I am a professional genealogist with a knack for organization. I have over 30 years of experience researching my family history. During those years, my passion for genealogy led to in-depth study of research methods and analysis and other professional activities. I am a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the National Genealogical Society, and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, as well as a member of two state genealogical societies and trustee of my local historical society. I have a certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University and have attended the Salt Lake City Institute of Genealogy and completed courses in "Advanced Research Tools: Land Records" by Richard G. Sayre and Pamela Boyer Sayre; and "Advanced Genealogical Methods" by Thomas W. Jones.
