Only a week away! We are very excited. If you have not registered yet,
please do so now, or at least let me know you are planning to come, even if
you plan to register at the door. I expect to make copies of speaker
handouts and do name tags this Wed.

She has served as president of the Board for Certification of Genealogists,

She edited the National Genealogical Society Quarterly for 16 years, making
it into a leading forum for the teaching of research methods and principles.
For many years, she has been a very popular instructor at Samford
University in Birmingham with her Advanced Research Methodology Track.
She has written 13 books and over 500 articles and essays. Her latest book

Elizabeth also wrote Professional Genealogy:A Manual for Researchers,
Writers, Editors, Lecturers and Librarians. Both are essentials for
personal and professional genealogists.
She has written an historical novel called Isle of Canes, an epic account of
a Creole family through four generations as it rose from slavery to rule
Cane River's fabled Isle (a story drawn from Elizabeth's personal research
in the archives of six nations). It was declared a "masterpiece" by
Historical Novels Review.
She is the genealogist who has had the most impact on American genealogy in
the post-Roots era.
