Jacquie Wilson came to the Bastrop County Genealogical Society on November 12, 2016 to show us how Social Media can help us with our genealogical research!  Jacquie is a professional genealogist. She worked for the National Archives for more than 25 years in DC and at the LBJ Library in Austin. She has a bachelors degree in Historical Studies and Masters of Library Science. Jacquie is also a “blogger” on her Stone Gardens website and Facebook page, as well as takes photos for Find a Grave and indexing records for Family Search.
