My name is Elyse Doerflinger and I write Elyse’s Genealogy blog to share my genealogy knowledge and information about my family. I’ve researched my family tree for nearly 8 years – and most of what I’ve learned, I’ve learned by making mistakes. My goal is to share the lessons I’ve learned in hopes of keeping you from making the same mistakes.
In 2010, I began speaking at genealogy society meetings and conferences. I love sharing my knowledge and interacting with other genealogists. I have been a speaker at many genealogy societies in Southern California and at Southern California Genealogy Society’s Jamboree conference in 2010.
I also branched out in 2010 and began writing for genealogy magazines. I have written for Internet Genealogy Magazine, Family Chronicle, and been featured in Family Tree Magazine.
Outside of my genealogy life, I am a full time college student studying to become an elementary school teacher.
I also work for a family tree building website, WikiTree. WikiTree is so cool because it has unique privacy controls that no other family tree building website has. Chris Whitten, the creator of WikiTree, truly cares about the thoughts, ideas, and concerns of WikiTree users. He cares about what the genealogy community has to say.
