Gail Lewis
Gail has been working on her own family genealogy for over 45 years and in that time, she has found other people who she can help with the experience she has learned along the way.
She found that she loved to teach what she loved to do so she's been teaching genealogy classes for the past ten years in Arizona and now in Longmont, Colorado, near where she lives. By researching her own family for so long and by answering so many questions from her students, she's had to learn how to break through those “brick walls” or find ways around them. There are so many websites that are full of information if you just take the time to search them out. They can be another source when you're out of ideas. She's done research for friends and acquaintances and even people with specific questions on where to look next.

She has little formal education in genealogy research but she has taken several classes from the LDS Church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) in Mesa, Arizona in past years. However, most of her knowledge comes from her own research.

Currently, she is Education Chairman at the Longmont Genealogy Society in Longmont, Colorado.
