Introducing Cinamon Collins – Associate Member of the Mentoring Program

Cinamon is our newest Associate Member of the Mentoring Program. Please welcome her; here is her bio to get to know her better!

Cinamon has been conducting genealogy research for the past 16 years and taking clients for the past year. She enjoys the chase and the thrill of discovery. Cinamon has the good fortune of having adventurous ancestors who have migrated and traveled through many states, allowing her to become familiar with various archives.

Before turning genealogy into a full time career, Cinamon was an elementary school teacher and professional photographer. It is not unusual to find her traipsing around cemeteries putting her photography skills to use.

Cinamon has completed the Boston University Genealogical Research Certificate Program, the National Genealogical Society Home Study Course, ProGen Study Group (9), National Institute of Genealogical Research, NIGR’s Advanced Methodology and Evidence Analysis, and is a graduate of the 2012 Forensic Genealogy Institute. She also volunteers at the Tennessee State Library and Archives.
