DGS member Patricia Law Hatcher, CG, FASG, has written many articles and books on genealogy. Between 2000 and 2006, Pat wrote 103 articles for Ancestry Daily News. The articles deal with methodology, sources, colonial life, problem solving, and adventures encountered in research. The subjects of the columns, taken as a whole, demonstrate what genealogy and family history is and should be about.

She has reformatted the articles into one-page pdf versions for publishing on the DGS website. These may be read online or downloaded and printed.
