WCPL Genealogist

Linda Lawson

Linda Terrell Lawson serves as the Washington County Public Library’s Genealogist. She is married to Dennie Lawson. Linda graduated from WCHS and Eastern Kentucky University. She worked in the local school district for 27 years, and has worked in the Library nearly 15 years. Linda began her career with the Library working on the bookmobile. As Genealogist, she uses documents in the library and courthouse to solve family questions from all over this United States! Linda likes research, so she enjoys her work because she gets to help people; family history is often interesting, sometimes cruel, sometimes a comedy even if you do not believe what you find. Admittedly, she may not be an expert, but she usually finds something for our patrons.   

“If you have hit a brick wall doing your family history, maybe I can be of help.”
