Jamboree 2015 - Meet the Speaker: Denise May Levenick

In every family, someone inherits "the stuff." Denise May Levenick is a writer, researcher, and speaker with a passion for preserving and sharing family treasures of all kinds. She is the creator of the award-winning family history blog The Family Curator and author of two books, How to Archive Family Photos (Family Tree Books, 2015) and How to Archive Family Keepsakes (Family Tree Books, 2012).

Denise inherited her first family archive from her grandmother - a trunk filled with photos, letters, documents, and lots of "miscellaneous stuff," and she is now the caretaker of several family collections. She has adapted professional archival techniques to the family archive situation and shares her experiences at her website, www.TheFamilyCurator.com, and in numerous books and articles.

Denise is a frequent lecturer and magazine contributor, and Chairman of the Suzanne Winsor Freeman Student Genealogy Grant program assisting young genealogists. She is a former high school English and Journalism teacher, and holds a Master's Degree in English Literature. Denise is a native Angelino now living in Pasadena.
