Celia McNay

Speaker: Celia McNay did her first family history project when she was 16 years old for a special church event. She has been doing genealogy, preserving family stories, and searching out relatives ever since. Now with a bachelor’s degree in Family History from Brigham Young University and over 25 years of research, she has formed her own research company, Go West Family Research. Celia is a member of Eastside Genealogical Society, the Association of Professional Genealogists, and is working on her national certification. Although her first love is picking through old documents, Celia also enjoys teaching others about genealogy. She has served as a Family History Consultant for the LDS Church for the past 9 years, teaching classes and helping others become excited about their family tree. She has taught for the Bellevue Regional Library in their ‘Genealogy Boot Camp’ workshops in 2013 and 2014.

About the Program: Celia will go through the major parts of the familysearch.org website with tips on searches, using information, and tutorial helps. She will introduce the Family Tree, which is a linked pedigree tree with family group pages. She will also share the Memories sections and if time permits demonstrate uploading pictures and documents.

Visitors Welcome!
Please join us.
