13 February 2017 ~ Finding Strangers in Your Pagjamas

Andrew LeeAuthor of the humorous book How to Fail High School English With Style, Andy Lee loves to tell the stories of his life and the life of his ancestors. He recently unraveled the mystery as to why his fraternal family line is not really “Lee.” Much of this was found by combining ‘old fashioned’ genealogy with genetic genealogy to establish the connection and the fascinating story behind his ancestor’s name change. Andy is a presenter at RootsTech 2016 in Salt Lake City.

Andy grew up in many parts of the country but claims Tulsa, Oklahoma as his hometown. During college, he took a two year break to serve a Mandarin Chinese speaking mission in Vancouver, British Columbia. After graduating from Texas A&M University in engineering, he has worked in Texas, New York, South Carolina, and Iowa.

8 May  2017 ~ What's Your Genealogy Goal for 2017

Linda WorshamLinda Worsham started her genealogy quest in 1973 when she attended her new husband’s family reunion. The family tree was drawn meticulously and carefully on a roll of butcher paper and was on the wall for everyone to admire. As she was studying it, she quickly came to the realization that she could have married her cousin. That day is when her journey began.

She has since acquired mounds of information, documents and pictures regarding her family, made numerous trips to cemeteries, to libraries, to nursing homes to interview relatives, attended funerals, marriages, and gone to courthouses.
