About Lori Barnett

As a child, Lori was captivated by her grandparents’ Russian origins and journey to America. She loved listening to their stories and looking at the old family photos. This burning curiosity led her to Skvyra, Ukraine in 2017 to visit her maternal grandmother’s ancestral town. On that trip, Lori realized how little she knew and how much she needed to learn. Her serious genealogical journey began August 2020 which coincided with her retirement as an educator. Since then, Lori has discovered relatives all over the world through DNA accompanied by a thorough paper trail. She has traveled throughout the United States to meet her new found cousins. As part of her genealogical journey, Lori has embarked on writing her familyʼs history. This has led her on a new journey of understanding her ancestorsʼ migration through the study of history. Her ancestors originate from Ukraine and Moldova.
