New Voices of Genealogy Release: Mary McCampbell Bell, CG




From guest editor, Arlene V. Jennings

The 100th birthday celebration for the NGSQ continues.  Join us this month for a chat with the delightful Mary McCampbell Bell in “Becoming a Genealogist.”  Mary shares stories about her inspiration, her learning, her teachers, and the joy and strains her passion for genealogy brought to her marriage.

A future episode with Mary will describe her experiences as a much-appreciated teacher of land platting at national conferences, Samford University’s Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research, and the Genealogical Institute of Texas.  In it she talks about the influence of one of her teaching colleagues, Birdie Holsclaw, whose posthumous article on land platting, co-authored with Karen Mauer Green, appears in the June issue of the NGSQ. Another segment will tell a poignant story of a family tragedy and the healing that followed.

The video was produced by award winning filmmakers Kate Geis and Allen Moore from an interview by Melinde Lutz Byrne, CG, FASG, co-editor of the NGSQ.

Mary McCampbell Bell, CG, “Becoming a Genealogist,” is now playing for all NGS members at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org.  Just log on and follow the link from the home page.
