Nancy Ellen Carlberg has been a professional genealogist since 1975,
and an amateur researcher since 1965 beginning when she discovered that
her brother had muscular dystrophy. While attempting to find out if it
showed up anywhere on the family tree, she became addicted to the
She worked in Salt Lake City for 2½ years as a professional genealogist
for a company and on her own. During this time, she had the opportunity
to do research in the records of 25 different countries, in almost as
many languages.She has a Master's Degree in Library Science and a
California Elementary Teaching Credential.
She feels that genealogy research is very important, especially for
young people, because, by finding out how our ancestors actually lived,
we will discover that life is getting better rather than worse and that
there is not a single ancestor with whom we would trade places. Her
advice to genealogists:
1. Don't be in a hurry. What you don't finish, someone else will.
2. Make sure that it is right. It is better to do five generations correctly, than 20 generations with a lot of errors.
3. Have patience. The record you need may not be ready for your use yet.
4. Never give up, the answer will be there eventually.
Come to this meeting and learn more about how to expand your genealogy research. Visitors
are welcome. Our programs are free, but donations are appreciated.
