Laura Lee Moncrief was born in Elwood, NE and received her B.S. degree in 1991 from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. In 2004 she retired to her home in Florissant, CO. Laura was bitten by the genealogy bug forty years ago. Her two daughters, Tosca and Amy Lee, have spent many hours with their mother researching in libraries, small county courthouses, and cemeteries. When Laura is not researching for information on her own family she cannot resist the challenge of solving mysteries for others.
