After a career as system analyst of computer business applications, Jo Ann Rowley-Minhoto turned her attention to genealogy in 1996 and parlayed both into her business, Computer Ancestors. She loves giving presentations, hoping to give someone value in their research. Jo Ann completed the National Genealogical Society's (NGS) "American Genealogy: A Basic Course" in 2004, received a certificate from Dallas Genealogical Society's (DGS) Land Institute in 1999, is a member of Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), and takes clients, both for computer related assistance and assistance in researching one's family history.
