Amy Johnson Crow, MLIS, CGsm , will join Archives.com as a Genealogical Content Manager and Contract Specialist. We're excited to welcome Amy to the Archives team, where she will be assisting in the acquisition and management of historical records collections.

As a researcher, editor, webmaster, and database developer, Amy's background unites genealogical expertise and technological savvy. A certified genealogist, she has written dozens of articles in genealogy publications, including a piece that garnered first place in the 2003 International Society of Family History Writers and Editors Excellence-in-Writing Contest. She serves as webmaster for the Federation of Genealogical Societies, and as a website and database consultant for several libraries and societies. With Pamela Boyer Porter, she co-authored the book Online Roots: How to Discover Your Family's History and Heritage with the Power of the Internet.

Amy has been active in the Ohio family history community for many years, coordinating the state's Civil War Soldiers Systems project and serving as the first editor of Ohio Civil War Genealogy Journal. Amy earned her Master of Library and Information Science degree at Kent State University, where she concentrated on digital libraries and digital preservation.

One of Archives' primary focuses is bringing more historical records to our users, through partnerships, public record office outreach, and the digitization of records that have never before been online. With her background in digitization and preservation, Amy will be critical to this effort moving forward.

Amy is excited to contribute her research expertise and technological savvy to the Archives team. "I enjoy connecting people with what they are looking for," she said. "Archives.com shares that vision. I'm looking forward to making more records available to help people discover their family trees."

We are excited to work with Amy, and we eagerly anticipate bringing you more historical resources together. Check back often for updates about the collections we've added lately.
