Gail’s Bio

Gail started  researching her family history in 1979.  At first her goal was to fill in the family tree chart in her children’s baby books.  But she didn’t stop there and became immersed in researching her family.

In 1990 Gail started working in a library with a small genealogy collection.  Because genealogy was her  hobby she became the go-to-person for patron’s genealogy questions.  For 10 years Gail helped patrons with their genealogy research and along the way she also learned from the patrons as well.  During this time Gail continued her education in Library Science and pursued a certificate in Basic American Genealogy from the National Genealogical Society.  She continued her own research and traced one line back to 1757 England and another line back to 1800 Belgium.

Gail worked at another library for 12 years where she conducted classes.  In February 2012 Gail retired from the library and now spends her time helping others with their research and will conduct classes for groups or individuals.  She will also conduct one-on-one consultations and help you organize your genealogy research.  She also volunteers in the Lake County Genealogical Society Research Room.

Gail is a member of the Lake County Illinois Genealogical Society.
