Presenter: Beth Foulk

Beth discovered her love of genealogy through her father, who built a 115-name family tree with every family member's name he knew. While Beth continues to research her family, she shares her knowledge through lectures, articles, her blog, and one-on-one assistance. She particularly enjoys speaking at regional conferences. Her focus is Early American Genealogy.
