Speaker: Connie Lenzen
Connie Lenzen became interested in genealogy when her grandmother asked, "Have you seen what is in Grandpa's diary?" These worn handwritten records of Grandpa's daily life opened up a world of mystery and intrigue as she pieced together the family's stories. In the process, Connie became fascinated with placing her ancestors in time and place. It brought them to life once again, and inspired her to follow the path that led to her career in professional genealogy.
Connie is certified by the Board for Certification of Genealogists and is a Past President of that organization. She has served as a Director of the National Genealogical Society (NGS). She authored the NGS Research in the States guide, Research in Oregon, as well as articles for the award-winning NGS Quarterly/ She developed the Twentieth-Century Research course for the National Institute of Genealogical Studies (NIGS).
Connie has a wonderful range of topics for us to consider. Visit her website at http://www/lenzenresearch.com/speechlist.html. If you see topics there that particularly appeal to you, contact the Board and let them know.
Come meet Connie Lenzen!
