Meet The Volunteers


Norma Bell Marcotte

My interest in genealogy began as a youngster when I was told that my grandfather was related to Alexander Graham Bell.  I have disproved this myth.

When I retired from the Asheville Medical Center, I became a volunteer at the Asheville Family History Center.  It was here that I became acquainted with Joe Lalley and his research.

My research has taken me to Switzerland, Southern Germany, Alsace-Lorraine, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Nova Scotia, Dakota Territory {South Dakota}, Iowa and Quebec.  The surnames are: Bell, Brown, Ehert, Eichacker, Lippert, Marcotte, and Murray.   I am most interested in receiving additional information others may have for these families.  I shall be happy to share the results on my own extensive research with others.

It should be noted that Norma has devoted many hours to the tedious process of proofing the transcriptions of many of our volunteers.  Her contributions  to the development of our web site cannot be overstated.
