Kellie Hale received a Bachelor of Science in Math Education from Brigham Young University in 2007, where she also completed minors in Genealogy and Music. During that time, she served as an intern with the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), and several weeks researching on site in England and Ireland.
Kellie became “hooked” on genealogy when she found a journal entry written by her 3rd great-grandfather describing his immigration experience. She has since spent an extensive amount of time in Eastern Europe identifying relevant records in local archives, been a guest speaker at several conferences and private lectures, and was the lead researcher for the Edie Falco episode of Who Do you Think you Are.
Kellie specializes in Eastern European research, with focus on the following areas: Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, Jewish, Immigration, United Kingdom, United States (post-1800) and 20th Century.
