Xenia Stanford, a professional genealogist with 40+ years’ experience, has written many articles for genealogy magazines and was editor when Chinook, the newsletter of the Alberta Family Histories Society, twice won best local society newsletter from the National Genealogical Society. Formerly a teacher, educational researcher, corporate librarian, archivist, systems analyst and project leader, she now devotes her time to genealogical research, writing books and editing memoirs.
