Please join us for Kathryn R. Willson's presentation, "The Records of New York City's Emigrant Savings Bank."
Katherine R. Willson of Ann Arbor, Michigan is an engaging & dynamic genealogy lecturer at local, regional and national conferences; an educator teaching beginning, intermediate, and advanced genealogy classes in Michigan since 2001; the author of The Genealogist’s Guide to Grand Rapids, Michigan (published in 2018 by The In-Depth Genealogist), and a professional researcher for private clients.
Her genealogy interests began when she was a Junior Girl Scout working towards a “My Heritage” badge, and her passion was fueled when, after college, both her mother’s and father’s relatives gave her binders containing generations’ worth of family information.
Her success in using Facebook to break down genealogical brick walls (both personally and in her classroom) inspired her to compile a list of 12,300+ Facebook genealogy links (updated June 2018). Additionally, she has created a compilation of 100+ instructional genealogical channels on YouTube.
