Blogger Showcase:Elyse Doerflinger

Elyse Doerflinger is young. A rare find in the genealogy community. She is also smart, perky, vivacious, cute as a bug, and just what this community needs.
Elyse is preparing to become a school teacher and she has the kind of personality that will make her a great one. (I see her teaching either kindergarten or fourth grade....she's really good with 5 year olds...or those who have a 5 year old's maturity level...but I could also see her making those sugar cube missions and getting the kids hooked on history.)

Elyse has some wonderful Youtube videos for beginning genealogists...or those of us who need a brush up. Just go to and search using her name "Elyse Doerflinger" and they will pop up.

In addition she writes a blog (Her first posts to her blog have been archived and can be found here.)  Elyse also works for WikiTree she is the "WikiTree Evangelist," spreading her love and knowledge of WikiTree to everyone who will listen.

If you are unfamiliar with WikiTree let me tell you a little about it. WikiTree is "a family tree building website that balances collaboration with unique privacy controls." Go check them out and see what the fuss is all about.

If you know a young person who might really like this genealogy thing...hook them up with Elyse. Show them her YouTube videos and her blog. Then bring them to the Southern California Genealogical Jamboree next June...Elyse will be there and she loves showing young folks the ropes.
