Anyone who knows Australian genealogist Jill Ball knows she emanates excitement for anything family and family history oriented. She blogs about family history and spearheads several online and local genealogy-related groups for Australians. She’s even flown halfway around the world several times to attend RootsTech, the world’s largest family history event, where she can be found gleefully handing out little stuffed koala bears (or some other proud Aussie memorabilia) and organizing meetups with Aussie attendees and other enthusiasts who have become good friends. She’s also a very staunch RootsTech ambassador, spreading the good word about the event and online resources within her sphere of influence Downunder. Her life and work have been filled with Australian history and genealogical tools that she continues to share with others with her signature cheerful and gregarious demeanor.
