Darcie Hind Posz, CG, Appointed Editor of NGS Magazine


Arlington, VA, 12 January 2015:  The National Genealogical Society (NGS) has appointed Darcie Hind Posz, CGSM as the new managing editor of NGS Magazine. Darcie joins NGS Magazine to continue NGS’s goal of sharing genealogical expertise from leaders in the field through articles, stories, instruction, and news in its quarterly magazine. As editor, Darcie will build upon the work of Elizabeth Kelley Kerstens, CG who recently retired as editor after ten years of distinguished service. 

Darcie Hind Posz is a certified genealogist who brings broad experience and an excellent educational background in genealogy to her new role. She served for over eight years as a staff genealogist at the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and most recently at the National Society of the Colonial Dames of the XVII Century in the same capacity. Darcie has written articles for The Genealogist (forthcoming in 2015), NGS Magazine, Federation of Genealogical Societies FORUM, Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly and the Reference, Access & Outreach section of the Society of American Archivists website. Her genealogical education includes coursework at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research at Samford University, the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, and the National Institute of Genealogical Research held each year at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. She has also taken the NGS American Genealogy course and participated in the GenProof, ProGen and NGSQ study groups. Darcie recently commented, “I am excited to start this new challenge as managing editor of NGS Magazine, and I look forward to working with a team of talented authors and designers to further develop thought-provoking content. I am fortunate to have worked with many journal, magazine and quarterly editors who have motivated me to be a better writer and editor. I am looking forward to this next chapter and contributing to NGS.”

Darcie also contributes time as a volunteer in the genealogy field. She currently serves as Director of the Board, Region 4, for the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) and was past Chapter President for the National Capital Area Chapter of APG, which was a recipient of the Golden Chapter Award in 2014 during her presidency. She also served FGS as the Chair of their Outreach Committee.

Jordan Jones, President of the National Genealogical Society said “Darcie’s experience, knowledge of genealogy, and editorial and writing skills made her a natural choice as managing editor, but it is her creative approach to examining topics that made her an exciting addition to the NGS family. We view Darcie’s appointment as a sign of NGS’s commitment to bring new ideas and a fresh point-of-view to our members.”

Founded in 1903, the National Genealogical Society is dedicated to genealogy education, high research standards, and the preservation of genealogical records. The Arlington, Virginia-based nonprofit is the premier national society for everyone, from the beginner to the most advanced family historian seeking excellence in publications, educational offerings, research guidance, and opportunities to interact with other genealogists.
