Hailey Thompson
Job Title

Hailey Thompson has a bachelor’s degree in Family History and Genealogy from Brigham Young University and became an Accredited Genealogist (AG(R)) in October 2023. Originally a linguistics major, Hailey began her study of the Eastern European world with Russian language classes and has since applied her love of that part of the world to genealogy. She was an intern on the Latin American and Slavic teams at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and credits much of her success to the mentors and friends she met in her time there.

Hailey has been trained to read documents in several languages, including Russian, Latin, and Hebrew. Hailey currently works as a research consultant on the Slavic team at the FamilySearch Library and loves working one-on-one with the library’s patrons to teach them how to find their Eastern European ancestors.
