Laurence Overmire





      LAURENCE OVERMIRE (USA) is an emerging voice for conscience and consciousness in the poetry world. Popularly known as “The Genealogist-Poet,” he has had a multi-faceted career as writer, actor, director, educator and genealogical researcher. His award-winning poetry, eclectic in form, style, and subject matter, and often provocative in its direct confrontation of social issues, has been widely published in the U.S. and abroad. He advocates complete freedom within the art form, simplicity of language, and focuses on the importance of what is being said.

He has published several impressive genealogical studies online, most notably “The Ancestry of Overmire, Tifft, Richardson, Bradford, Reed,” which includes the family trees of many U. S. Presidents and European monarchs, and a host of famous statesmen, soldiers, artists, actors, writers, poets, musicians, scientists, inventors, and social reformers. His work has helped tens of thousands of people discover their family roots and find their intimate connections to the people and events that have shaped world history. In fact, much of his poetry is focused on this central theme, that we are all related, all part of the same human family, and intimately dependent on one another for our collective well-being.
