I'm Hilary Swanson.  I'm a genealogy professional in the greater Indianapolis, Indiana area. I worked as a mechanical engineer and other jobs in the construction industry for over 13 years pursuing genealogy and family history only as a hobby.  After the birth of my two children I decided to make my passion my career and founded Hello Genealogy, a business dedicated to providing professional genealogy services.

"For years, I wondered about my maternal grandmother's family. The only thing I knew was that she was an orphan. Hilary was able to find that she was actually adopted by a family member."  

-Bill Broman, client



"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.” 

- Alex Haley



I have a number of long-term personal "pet" projects that I work on. Most projects revolve around sorting and organizing personal collections of historic artifacts.
