Carol Erlam has had a passion for genealogical research since elementary school. Her traditional genealogy research focuses on the late 19th and 20th-century immigration of Irish, Carpatho-Rusyn, Ukrainian, and Polish individuals to Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Administration of Justice from Rutgers, an Associate in Science in Law Enforcement and Administration from Camden County College, NJ, and a Litigation of Management Certificate from the Philadelphia Institute of Paralegal Studies. Carol founded Generations Research, LLC, and has provided professional genealogy research to clients since 2022. In 2023, she expanded her practice to investigative genetic genealogy with casework in unidentified human remains, homicide victims, and post-conviction, with 10 cases to date.
