Angela Conrow has a passion for finding the stories that ignite personal reflections of the past. She holds a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from the University of Montana and a master’s degree in library and information science from San José State University. Her graduate studies focused on archives and the genealogical community. Other areas of scholarly interest include metadata standards, indexing (journal and book indexing), abstracting, and open access. Prior to graduate school Angela edited a small magazine where she provided constructive feedback to aspiring writers.
Currently, Angela is a student in ProGen59. She has been practicing family history research for family and friends since 2004 with particular focus in the Great Lakes region and Washington state. She recently attended the Research in the Great Lakes course at GRIP. In addition to archives, writing and editing, Angela particularly wants to find a niche within the genealogical community aimed at illuminating genealogies of underserved communities.
Please note: I am available to do look-up requests online at the Hayden Family History Center, which is currently open on a limited basis.
