About me


Welcome to my personal genealogy blog! My name is EvaAnne Johnson. I began researching my family roots when I was ten years old. Recently, my interest in genealogy has been rekindled, and I am eager to share my experiences! I currently work at a public library in a suburb of Chicago, and I am pursuing a Master’s of Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois. In the future, I hope to become a librarian who contributes to a local history and genealogy collection. I am also becoming the keeper of my own family’s history, thus the “Family Librarian!”

My family’s history is rooted in DeKalb County and Chicago, Illinois, and branches out to Northern Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, England, Sweden, and Germany. Check out my blog posts for stories that I’ve uncovered about my family’s history! Please contact me with questions, comments, or feedback by filling out the form below or commenting on a blog post!
