The CountyHistorian website was established February 2007 by me Will Johnson, Professional Genealogist, Biographer and Historian. I've been doing genealogy as a hobby for 30 years, and professionally since 2001.  Although I started this business doing genealogy, I found that it's the process of documenting that I enjoy.  This naturally led to pursuing articles that weren't strictly about a person's family tree.  I've writen several biographical articles without really finding out much about the person's ancestors.  Also I've writen histories of companies and organizations.
