NextGen Welcomes Graphic Designer

The NextGen Genealogy Network welcomes Emily Phillips as our new Graphic Designer. Emily first became interested in genealogy after a class assignment in her freshmen year of high school got her hooked. She then joined the Genealogical Society of Monroe County, where she was the youngest member. She enjoys researching her French Canadian and Polish roots. In fact, researching her family tree has helped Emily make many new connections, including her distant Polish relatives, who she visited in 2016. They still live in her ancestral village of Jabłonka, Poland.

Emily graduated, in 2017, from Saginaw Valley State University with a degree in graphic design. She currently lives in Monroe County, Michigan. She hopes that her knowledge of graphic design will help NextGen as we continue to grow as an online community.
