Super Genealogists, They Do Exist

Thom sent me the obituary of a lady, Nancy Harris of Alexandria, VA, whom I can only describe as a ‘Super Genealogist’. I’ll let it do the talking:


Nancy Louise Edwards Harris of Alexandria died Monday, Aug. 1, 2005. She was born in King George County, July 15, 1918, while her father served in the U.S. Army in France during World War I.

Mrs. Harris was graduated from the Capital City School of Nursing in Washington, D.C., in 1939, and became a Licensed Registered Professional Nurse in the District. She worked in every hospital in Washington and served in the U.S. Public Health Service.

She was graduated from Catholic University with a double major, psychiatry and administration. She did graduate work in administration at Catholic University, University of Virginia, and the University of Maryland. She was a retired nursing administrator.

She was a member of 65 genealogical societies and has held office, including national office, in many of them. She wrote 99 books on history and genealogy.
