Jamboree - Meet the Speakers: Elyse Doerflinger

Elyse Doerflinger is a professional genealogist specializing in using tech tools to make research more efficient and organized. She is the author of Elyse’s Genealogy Blog and has created a YouTube channel with a variety of genealogy videos. She loves to research her Appalachian ancestors, Colonial New England ancestors, and her never-stay-in-one-place-for-long ancestors that moved all over the country. She also has ancestry from England, Wales, France, and Germany.

When Elyse is not tracking down people, she works as an elementary school teacher in the Los Angeles area. She is also currently planning her wedding to her Prince Charming and takes way too many photos of her cat.

The Jamboree organizers refuse to confirm or deny the rumor that Elyse confirmed Jamboree dates before setting her wedding date.
