Nancy Carlberg is a well-known professional genealogist, a lecturer, and author.

Nancy has been a professional genealogist since 1975. For 2-1/2 years she worked in Salt Lake City doing research in the records of 25 different countries and in almost as many languages. Then she worked for Alex Haley gathering background material for Roots II, Queen, and a television miniseries, Palmerstown, USA. Since 1985 Nancy has written over 69 books. They include books on genealogical research in general, and also books on researching in various countries of the world, including England, Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, and Mexico. For 12 years Nancy was a librarian and cataloger at the Los Angeles Family Search Library, and now volunteers at the Anaheim Family History Center 4 mornings a week. She also takes tour groups and individuals to Salt Lake City and to the British Isles. Nancy has a Master's Degree in Library Science and a California Elementary Teaching Credential. One piece of advice she gives researchers is to make sure that your research is correct. She says that it's better to do five generations correctly, than 20 generations with a lot of errors.

Meetings are the fourth Saturday of:

January, March, May, July, September, and November.
