Angie Bush, MS, is the Region 1 Director for the National Genealogical Society and chair of its genetic genealogy committee. She’s also a full-time genetic genealogist researcher with AncestryProGenealogists in Salt Lake City.
Angie has been interested in her genealogy since she was very young. After college, she spent several years working in biotech while continuing to hone her genealogy skills as a hobby. With the introduction of autosomal DNA testing in 2012, she decided to combine her two loves into one career. Although she spends much of her time working on recent unknown parentage cases, her favorite type of research involves breaking through decades-old “brick walls” using a combination of traditional records and genetic evidence. She is a popular speaker and presenter, and she enjoys attending conferences where she can connect with others who share her passion for genealogy. Angie is a Utah native and lives with her husband and two descendants in Sandy, Utah.
