Nancy's interest in History started when she was very young and started helping her Father research his family. They are Native American and he wanted to write a story about his Great Grandfather who was the first governor elected by the Chick-asaw Tribe. And this was all before computers!! She was born in McAllen, Texas but has lived all over the world before she moved to Boerne where she has lived for 45 years. She has seven (7) children and most of them have heard all the stories she tells about history and genealogy. Nancy is a member of the Chickasaw Nation and presently is the Chairman of the Chickasaw Council of South Texas. She helps those of all tribes to trace their ancestry in this area. She will give you tips on where to look for information. She will show you what to look for and why there is a lot more documents about the Native Americans than what people think. You will want to be a part of the Native American tribes when you hear what she has to say! Nancy was President of the Genealogy Society of Kendall County for several years and was instrumental in the partnership of that group and the LDS group in Boerne. She invites all to come by their library in Boerne and let her group help you with your research; especially if you think you might have an Indian in your family!

She is currently a member of the High Country Ward in the San Antonio East Stake. Brityn earned a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Brigham Young University and a master’s degree in Library and Information Science with an emphasis in Cultural Heritage Information Management from Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. Her first two library jobs were at the Virginia Historical Society Library and then the Oklahoma Historical Society Library, both catering to a large genealogical patronage. Ironically, Brityn didn’t become passionate about her own family history until two years ago when she was asked to illustrate a 45-page children’s book about her ancestors for a large family reunion. Since living in San Antonio she has enjoyed instructing classes on archives research.
