Kimmitt Genealogical Research

About Me

My name is Polly FitzGerald Kimmitt. I am a Board-certified genealogist® specializing in Massachusetts. My specialties include determining the place of origin of immigrants to New England (from Mayflower to mid-20th century) as well as general New England research, especially Massachusetts. My research often takes me into the rest of New England, New York, Eastern Canada, and the British Isles.

I majored in French in college and lived in Italy for four years, so I speak both languages. My reading and writing skills are much better than speaking now, a certain amount of time having passed since the days when I was fluent in both! I can also navigate fairly well in Spanish and Portuguese documents.

I live in Central Massachusetts with my husband. We have three sons, all out of the nest now. All five of us have dual citizenship. My hobbies include knitting, cardmaking, collecting Staffordshire transferware, and singing in the Worcester Chorus.
