Need Assistance With Your Research?


All members of Clan Baird Society Worldwide are allotted two(2) hours of research time. There is ZERO charge! We're happy to help you work through brick walls, gain insights into your specific branches, and steer you through research methods and tools that might further assist your research. We work with traditional and genetic genealogy. Not all issues can be resolved within the two hour margin, so brick wall queries will remain an open case that we will work alongside you on, as time allows, until hopefully resolved.

Need Help Sourcing Your Baird Lineage?

If you are a Baird descendent but are lacking the source documents to fully prove your lineage, please reach out to us! We're happy to help you properly source your Baird line.

There is a lot of confusion and inconsistencies running rampant online and sometimes the family genealogies we inherit are a bit jumbled. If this should happen to be the case for you, we'd very much like the opportunity to work together and assist in ironing out problem areas that might linger in your branches.

Interested in Joining Our Baird DNA Studies?

Have you had your DNA tested at AncestryDNA, FTDNA, 23&Me or MyHeritage? Are you a male Baird that had your Y DNA tested at FTDNA? Come join our Autosomal DNA Study and our Y DNA Study! For more details, email either Crystal or Brittany and we'll be happy to discuss the projects with you more fully.

If your particular genealogy issue or question doesn't fall into the list above, please don't hesitate to reach out. We'd be more than happy to assist in whatever way possible! We look forward to working with you.

We're Here to Help!

Greetings Cousins, near and far!


I am a professional genealogist, author, and content creator. Beginning as a hobbyist family historian in 1992, I began serving clients in a professional capacity in 2006. I hold certification in DNA & Genetic Genealogy, am pursuant of certification in American and Scottish Records, and have begun my journey for accreditation, equivalent to a Masters, in the field of genealogy.


As a descendant of John Baird of Monmouth NJ, I proudly serve the CBSW as genealogist. I am excited to work with members of our vibrant and ever-growing clan.

Hello Baird family! It’s so wonderful to be a part of such an amazing group of cousins. I am so very thankful for the opportunity to also serve as a clan genealogist for Clan Baird Society Worldwide and look forward to working with everyone. I am also a descendent of “Old John Baird” of Monmouth County, New Jersey, through his son John Junior. For as long as I can remember, I was dragged every summer to my maternal grandmother’s “Baird Family Reunion”, held here in Iowa. I cringed when I was young, but as I got older, I slowly began to appreciate all of the family history that was shared each year and started to look forward to the following year. And thus, my “Baird Family Addiction”, was born. I have worked on family research off and on in some capacity since high school, though my more focused research has surfaced in the last 7-8 years, and developed into a website, research, and personally-created research tools, available at Branches in Time Genealogy. In the last 5 years, I have also delved into the realm of genetic genealogy and volunteered as an “Adoption Angel” for Wiki Tree Adoption Angels and, assisting adoptees with discovering their birth families. Currently, I’m working towards accreditation and certification in American Records and Scottish Records through the National Institute for Genealogical Studies, and plan to add a DNA & Genetic Genealogy certificate when the program is available. I look forward to getting to know everyone and hope to see you all in Scotland next summer! If ever you have questions, you can reach out to me on Facebook or email me at:
