SPEAKER BIOGRAPHIES
DR. RHONDA CLARK holds a Master’s degree in Russian and East European Studies, a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science, and a Doctorate in Russian History. She has extensive experience in overseas archives. She now teaches full-time in the Department of Library Science at Clarion University, working with the arrangement and preservation of local library collections, reference skills for local history and genealogy, and the digitization of unique local items for digital library collections.

Before joining ORA, Jenn was an Architectural Historian for a private cultural resource management firm where she worked on projects across the country. Her interest in historic cemeteries comes from her parents, who never met a cemetery not worth exploring.

B. J. JAMIESON is the genealogy reference specialist at the Maine State Library, which lets her indulge her love of books and genealogy to an extent that she didn’t think was possible before she accepted the position. She has a postgraduate degree in genealogy from the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland) as well as a master’s degree in library science from Clarion University. When she isn’t tracing ancestors (her own and other people’s) she can be found knitting or playing with foster cats.
