Ruth BurkholderOGS 2009 Conference Speaker - Ruth Burkholder
...Ruth BurkholderRuth Burkholder has been working in the local history and genealogy fields for the past twenty-five years.
During this time she
has seen the emphasis change from printed page and microfilm to microfiche, and then to databases on floppy disks, to the current online material; and has learned how to make the best use of all the resources available to her
talks and teaches, writes books and compiles indexes, works for others and volunteers her
time with historical and genealogical societies.Her
biggest thrill comes, however, when she
can help someone find their way through the maze of records to that EUREKA moment, when they find the information they have been searching for.
