BIO: Ellen Kowitt

[/vc_column_text][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”10″][vc_column_text]The story behind the company name “Sole Searching” is personal. Ellen’s paternal great grandfather manufactured shoes for the Russian army, and she’s been following in the footprints of his life story for many years. Intentionally spelling “Sole” to reflect the sole of a leather shoe like the one Yosef Shindelman produced in the early 1900s, it also represents every individual pursuit of a family’s unique journey.


Ellen is a veteran Jewish records researcher and leader in genealogy activities worldwide. She has the capacity to complete projects solo or to recruit the right team of experts to collaborate and deliver outstanding results. Her lectures and articles are informative, energetic, and constantly evolving to provide current and relevant content for all types of audiences.


As a volunteer in the genealogy world for 25 years, Ellen has held numerous leadership roles, organized records acquisition, indexed, and managed translation projects in the United States and abroad.


Ellen continues to add to her knowledge toolbox by attending professional conferences, webinars, and genealogy institutes, and she is currently enrolled in the ProGen Study Group cohort #46. Ellen keeps the APG code of ethics in the forefront of her research and reporting.


Ellen loves helping others to discover connections, break through brick walls, or learn something new to add to their family story. She is dedicated and provides high quality work informed by her volunteer experience, a valuable peer network, and her professional marketing and communications background with corporations and nonprofit organizations in New York, Washington DC, and Colorado.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
