My name is Kim Kujawski and I’m originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I grew up in a small Franco-Ontarian village with a German-born father and Québec-born mother. I'm fluent in both French and English, and conversational in Spanish.
My love for genealogy began over a dozen years ago and I’ve been researching my own family, and that of many others, ever since. Even more important than climbing branches of a family tree, I try to dig into each ancestor’s story and what their day-to-day life was like. Placing my own family in a historical context—social, cultural, political—is the most fascinating aspect of my research.
I have a Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies (PLCGS) from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies (affiliated with the University of Toronto) and have a GFA (Généalogiste de filiation agréé) designation from the Fédération québécoise des sociétés de généalogie. I am a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), the British Columbia Genealogical Society and the Montreal-based Société généalogique canadienne-française.
When I’m not climbing family trees, you can find me playing volleyball, travelling, hiking, or honing my photography skills.
