Remembering Julie Overton


Julie Overton lived in Yellow Springs most of her adult life. She got into the field of genealogy almost by accident. Someone asked for help seeking an ancestor. Overton found information and in time did considerable research for others. She was president of the Ohio Genealogical Society and became head of the Greene County Room at the Greene County Library, where she helped many people with their research into family history. She had a habit of saying “Good morning” no matter what time of day she greeted anyone. She said it made people stop and think a minute. She was an inspiration to other when she would say “You can do that.”
