Cari Taplin is related to Roy Rogers. Or at least the stories her grandparents told her as a child said so. As a result, she has been working on finding her true heritage since the year 2000. She is a native of Wood County, Ohio but migrated to Wyoming, Colorado, and now Texas. She is a past President of the Boulder (CO) Genealogical Society, and has been a speaker to local and state societies since 2004. She is the owner of GenealogyPANTS, providing speaking, research and consultation services. She has had articles published in the Boulder Genealogical Society Quarterly, Digital Genealogist and the National Genealogical Society Magazine. She is the 2013 recipient of the Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr. Prize. When she’s not working on her genealogy, she is a wife and mother of two/too cute kids.
