Ten Questions to Ask Every Document
It Isnít All About Their Time in the Army!
About our speaker:
November 2007, saw Sue Brandes Tolbert celebrate her 37th wedding anniversary with her husband Rick. Together they have raised a daughter and three sons and have four beautiful grandsons and a granddaughter ranging in age from 14 years to just over a year old.
Born in Oklahoma, her interest in her own familyís history and itís participation in the history of the area was encouraged by her grandmother as a young girl. As she grew up, two teachers, an English teacher who was an avid genealogist, and a history teacher who loved Oklahoma history, firmly planted the interest in both subjects in her heart.
For the past eleven years Sue has taught genealogy classes for beginner through advanced students. She has also provided many presentations to genealogical and historical societies and cemetery preservation groups, as well as civic organizations. A member of the Muskogee County Genealogical Society, Oklahoma Historical Society, National Genealogical Society, Association of Gravestone Studies, Eastern Oklahoma Cemetery Preservation Organization and the Oklahoma Cemetery Preservation Association illustrates her commitment to history. She is also a proud and active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the United Daughters of the Confederacy, continuing her dedication.
In addition to attending numerous local and state conferences she has also attended National Genealogical Society and Federation of Genealogical Societies Conferences. She has completed courses by the University of Torontoís Institute of Genealogical Studies and survived the Intermediate Genealogy and Advanced Methodology and Evidence Analysis courses at Samford Universityís Institute of Genealogical and Historical Research.
As a Genealogy Reference Specialist in the Local History and Genealogy Department of the Muskogee Public Library, she assisted researchers primarily interested in Creek and Cherokee lineage for close to a decade. As the Executive Director of the Three Rivers Museum, a local history museum and archives in Muskogee, she continues in her quest to make genealogy and history easily accessible to all.
