Hey there, I'm Prudence

aka The Creative Family Historian

I’m passionate about graphic design, family history and solving mysteries. When the role of Nancy Drew’s sidekick didn’t open up, I turned to family history research to solve the “Mystery of the Missing Ancestors” instead.

My passion for uncovering family stories and solving genealogical mysteries, inspired me to create the Creative Family Historian so I can help people to preserve and celebrate their family histories through unique and visually stunning designs.

With a strong commitment to storytelling and a talent for design, I’m here to help you uncover and preserve your family stories with thoughtful design and creative solutions.
