When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

About Me



Welcome!
Cheri Hudson Passey has been researching her family and helping others get started with their research since the early 1980's. Born in Camden, South Carolina, her ancestors have been in the state for many generations. She is truly a "Carolina Girl". A love of History and Genealogy has grown into a passion for not only for researching name, dates, and places, but for adding flesh on the bones with family pictures, stories, and ephemera.

Cheri is the owner of Carolina Girl Genealogy, LLC. Along with traditional client research, her Genealogy 1-on-1 Research Services include classes that provide individual and group instruction as well as coaching for all levels and needs. She also enjoys speaking and writing about the many aspects of family history.

Cheri is a member of the National Genealogical Society, Association of Professional Genealogists, The NextGen Genealogy Network, APG-SL Chapter, The South Carolina Historical Society, The South Carolina Genealogical Society, The North Carolina Genealogical Society, and several South Carolina Genealogy Societies. She currently serves as the  Program Chair and is a past President of the Grand Strand Genealogy Club.

Her blog, Carolina Girl Genealogy has been instrumental in connecting with and sharing information about her family and the research process.

Cheri Hudson Passey writes the Modus Operandi column for the magazine Going In-Depth from the In-Depth Genealogist and is a twice-monthly contributor to their blog. She also contributes to the World Wide Genealogy Blog as well as writing guest posts for community and industry blogs.
Cheri is also an instructor with the In-depth Genealogist Acadamy.
