One of the greats of the genealogy world is retiring. Lou Szucs say she is going to use her free time to work on her own genealogy, something that has been difficult to do as she was busy being a vice-president of Ancestry. She joined the company in 1982 as employee number one and has helped convert the company from a tiny publisher of genealogy books into the online powerhouse it is today.
I was going to write a tribute to Lou for this newsletter. Then I read the tribute written by Kristie Wells in the Ancestry Blog. I cannot write anything better than that.
I strongly recommend you read Ancestry’s Employee Number One, Retires: Ode to Lou Szucs at http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2015/03/31/ancestrys-employee-number-one-retires-ode-to-lou-szucs/.
