Meet Jill, one of Legacy Tree Genealogists talented project managers!
Jill Balmuth got the genealogy bug in 2005 when a stranger showed up to her grandmother’s funeral. That stranger turned out to be her grandmother’s first cousin, who shared family stories and information about relatives close and distant. She wanted to know more, and a love for genealogy was born.
Prior to joining Legacy Tree Genealogists, Jill had a genealogy consulting business, Jewel Genealogy, named to honor her immigrant great-grandparents who owned The Jewel Candy Company, a South Philadelphia wholesale candy business that was lost during the great depression.
Jill is active in volunteer work for various non-profits including the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston (JGSGB) where she serves as publicity chair. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), and the Massachusetts Genealogical Council.
Jill received a Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. After college, she worked in public relations in the high-tech and healthcare industries in New York City and Boston. She holds a Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University.
