Family History

Daniel M. Lynch

Dan Lynch, Google Your Family Tree Dan Lynch is a marketing consultant and professional genealogist based in Connecticut. A fourth generation American of Irish and Italian descent, Dan has enjoyed the many challenges of researching his family history since the late 1970s — the era of the American Bicentennial and Alex Haley's ground-breaking novel 'Roots'. His hometown of Waterbury, Connecticut is rich in history and was one of four cities featured in the 2007 Ken Burns documentary, 'The War'.

After fifteen years in the computer industry, Dan focused his skills on the emerging online market for genealogy and in 1998 joined Ancestry, Inc. as vice president of business development helping to launch the Web site — one of the fastest growing community sites at that point in Internet history. During his tenure, the company acquired RootsWeb, the oldest free online community for genealogy research. Following three years at Ancestry, Dan worked for the A&E Television Network during their brief ownership of and the Family Tree Maker software franchise.

In 2002, Dan founded Mattatuck Consulting, a private consulting firm specializing in Internet and search engine marketing solutions. His clients include The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation (New York), FindMyPast (London),, Inc. and (Utah), as well as other organizations outside the genealogy sector.
