Jill Morelli began her genealogical research over 30 years ago when she discovered that she didn’t know her grandmother’s name. Having all four of her grandparents die before she reached the age of seven also left her without those conversations that naturally occur between grandchild and grandparent. She vowed to find out more and has been researching ever since. She has always approached her research as a process that required careful analysis and synthesis of information before coming to conclusions. This thoughtful process is an advantage to those who seek her services, as they know that conclusions will not be hastily drawn.

Janice Lovelace Ph.D. has 20 years of experience in family history research as well as academic work in the area (Genealogy and Family History certificate at UW in 2012, Certificate program in genealogy at Boston University, 2013). A member of Seattle Genealogical Society (SGS) for a number of years, she joined the SGS Board as Vice-President in June 2014. She is also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. In her work life, she is a licensed clinical psychologist with a specialization in child and family therapy. She has also been a private practice therapist and a faculty member teaching psychology.

Donna Potter-Phillips is the president of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society (EWGS). She is one of the original incorporators of EWGS. She has authored several surname booklets, including Gilbert Gallery, Potter Profiles, Oswald Outline, and Texas Queries. Donna wrote the Heritage Hunting column for the Spokane Daily Chronicle for years (note: the Spokane Chronicle is online in Google News so you can read her columns online). She also wrote many articles for the Bulletin including the “News Hotline” column.

Janet O’Conor Camarata has researched her own family history for over 25 years. As a seminar presenter and trainer in genealogy societies across Washington she supports genealogy in a variety of ways – presenter, educator, newsletter editor, program Soldiers, Spies, & Farm Wives – Changing Roles of Women During the Civil War
