Welcome To My Genealogy World!

Look to the right to find links to my individual surname websites.

This website is here to share information about me, Elaine Hafield Powell, and my research. My passion is family history research and sharing that passion with others! I love the “hunt” and the detective work it entails. I’ve visited many large and small-town archives, libraries and courthouses over the years, to try to document my family and their history. I’ve corresponded with a lot of cousins along the way, and that is by far the most gratifying of all.

All of these webpages were created by me, Elaine, aka The Heritage Lady. When I became a scrapbooking consultant in 1995 I started sharing my interest in genealogy and I created a family heritage album. All my customers liked it so much that they asked me to teach them. That evolved into heritage album classes and eventually a book. My customers started calling me “The Heritage Lady” and it stuck!

I have shared some of the information I have gathered over the last 30 years that I have been researching my family. I have a LOT more to add, and I will, as time permits.

I love teaching others how to research their family history and to document that history in their scrapbooks, website, and family stories.

If you find a family connection, have a question, or would like me to present a program or teach a class to a group, please contact me — Elaine Hatfield Powell, by commenting on this post.
