Amy Rickman lives in Melbourne Beach, Brevard County, Florida, her hometown. Following college at Emory University, she worked for Pfizer Inc. for 26 years and Lockton Dunning Benefits for 12 years. In 2019, Amy and her identical twin Ann began studying family genealogy. Through their research they have succeeded in becoming members of the DAR (a Charlotte, North Carolina Chapter and Melbourne Beach, Florida Chapter), Colonial Dames XVII Century (Merritt Island, Florida Chapter) and Colonial Dames of America (Melbourne, Florida Chapter). Her two British Colonial America ancestors were entirely new for those societies. Amy and Ann have verified ancestors from Pennsylvania and Virginia and are about to submit their Sewall ancestors who moved from North Carolina to settle in Carroll County, Georgia. She has successfully contacted courthouse probate offices, cemetery offices, archives in the city of Philadelphia and even property owners.
