Susan Sloan worked for 30 years at AT&T in Cost Engineering. It was during that time she met her husband, John, who sparked her interest in genealogy. When she retired from AT&T in June 2000, Susan turned her love of genealogy into a second career. She is a professional genealogist, whose areas of concentration are teaching Family History classes, conducting private lineage research and preparing lineage applications.

Susan currently is volunteering as Senior Registrar for the Button Gwinnett Society Children of the American Revolution. She has spoken at historical societies, seniors groups and Rotary meetings in the metro-Atlanta area, and her father’s home genealogical society in Colleton County, SC.

Susan holds a B.S. in Psychology and a M. Ed. degree, both from Georgia State University. She is a member of the Georgia Professional Genealogists, the Association of Professional Genealogists, and several state and local genealogical societies and lineage societies. She serves on the Board of the Georgia Genealogical Society and on the Advisory Committee for the R. J. Taylor Foundation that provides funding for books useful to Georgia genealogists.
