Hannah Grant is the second of two children born to David Grant & Wanda Jones. The Grant family moved from her birthplace in Kansas up to Michigan as David followed his career as a civil employee for the United States Army. Hannah was named so after her 3rd great grandmother Hannah Dempsey (nee Butler) from her father's maternal side. The middle name Maureen was given in lieu of the famous Maureen O'Hara, a popular actress of the parents decade. The family all still resides locally in Michigan, a halfway point between the parents origins of Midwestern United States and Canada.


Ms. Grant holds four undergraduate diplomas in the social sciences including cultural anthropology and behavioral science. In 2015, she completed a Masters degree in Educational Technologies. Today she volunteers as a web services librarian for a digital archive project.


A large majority of her genealogy work pertains to native ancestry in the woodland and maritime regions of Canada and neighboring US states.

Hi, Hannah. I have a Coultas lady who married at Brompton by Sawdon who I cannot identify. I see you have Coultas-52-Robert Coultas at Brompton and presume that is Brompton by Sawdon, also associated with Hutton Buscel. (note spelling). May I add those categories to the profile? This will group them together and hopefully will help identify them at a later date. I suspect they were related.

Thank you very much! I do not like to go around and note things for which I am not taking the time to do research and provide records but I was at work and I received an email from a data errors project member about a problem with the date of her daughter's profile which then turned out to have the wrong parents so I was happy to see you had the parents up but then there was another data error about her being born after the mother's death and at that point I was so ou of time! I was planning to go back! You saved me some time in which I can hopefully work on my own errors!

I was contacted because I am the leader of Southern Colonies and they hoped I would know what to change. I am so glad they didn't just remove or change a date. At least the line is corect now.

Thanks for your note!
