Making the world smaller by connecting people to each other and the information that they need is the goal of Connections Abound.
Carole Ashbridge was a school librarian for thirty-five years in a high school, elementary schools, and a K-12 school in Kentucky and New York. She holds a B.A. in the Classics from Wilson College and an M.L.S. from the School of Library and Information Sciences of the University of Pittsburgh.
She has presented on the local and state levels on connecting students and teachers to information resources, WebQuests, teen reading, and new technologies. Her school web page was selected by School Library Journal as the Web Page of the Month. She believes that students and teachers need a guide through the information maze and she is prepared to be that guide.
Since retiring from the school setting Carole has taken her love of research and connecting people and information to the world of genealogy and family history. Enrolled in the National Intstitutes for Genealogical Studies Certificate program, she continues to hone her research skills. Carole is available to conduct research in the Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania area. She enjoys presenting to genealogy societies on how best to manage and organize your research and information needs.
Connecting people to the world through European trips has been a passion and focus for the last ten years. These are wonderful opportunities for students and/or adults can easily be part of your students' high school experience or your genealogy group.
