Susan Kaufman, MLIS, Senior Manager Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research

Susan Kaufman is Senior Manager of the Houston (TX) Public Library’s Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research in Houston, Texas.  An Illinois native, Susan has more than 30 years of experience as a genealogy librarian and in Special Collections.

The Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research is consistently named one of the ten best genealogical research facilities in the United States. This collection, part of the Houston Public Library, is an international resource in Houston. An overview of the materials available for research and searching strategies will be presented.

A presenter at local, state and national genealogy conferences and meetings, she also has held numerous genealogical society board positions in Illinois, Indiana, and Texas and at the national level with the Federation of Genealogical Societies.

There are many source materials for family history research often not thought of, or out of the mainstream of research.  An overview of these really cool and unusual sources will be discussed.  At the very least, you will walk out saying…wow, that Was some cool stuff.  

Join us on ZOOM to hear an interesting and informative program by this dynamic speaker. Her interest and knowledge of all thing’s genealogy comes across in any program she presents.  If you have attended any of her programs at past conferences, you know what I am talking about.  If you haven’t had an opportunity to hear Susan previously, now would be the time to take advantage of this opportunity.
