Hello, my name is Diane L Richard. I am the Owner/President of Mosaic Research and Project Management. I often short-hand that to MosaicRPM.
We have been doing genealogy research since 1987, as a professional since 2003, along with writing and lecturing since 2006. We would love to support you as you research your ancestors.
To learn all about our genealogy, family history and general history research services, click on the "Services" tab. Or click "About Us" or "Experience" to learn more about who we are and what credentials and experience we will bring to your project!
We are also available to deliver talks whether a single 50 minute talk or 4 talks in a workshop-type format. Whether your organization or facility is local (RTP Area of NC) or anywhere in the U.S. we are available to talk on genealogy resources or NC-specific topics.
Have a question? Want to know how we might support your needs? Please click on the "Contact Us" tab to see how to get in touch.
