Diana Crisman Smith began researching her ancestry at age eleven. She has been working with clients for nearly twenty years, as well as teaching and presenting to a variety of organizations across the US (and at sea). She has written for print and online publications, presented to groups large and small in person and via webinars. Her perspective is flavored by her background as a trained and licensed teacher, a professional secretary, her involvement over the years with the development of computer and Internet technology, and (of course) her interest in history.
Diana Crisman Smith is Treasurer of the International Society of Family History Writers and Editors (ISFHWE), Treasurer, Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), Treasurer, Florida State Genealogical Society, and Past District Director of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG).
