Today’s topic, “Researching Through Maternal and Sibling Lines” is presented by Linda Serna. This program explores options for researching through the women, and brothers and sisters as well as other relatives in the family, by looking at a combination of sources available as well as hints and other relevant information of which to be aware, using actual examples for illustration.
Linda has been involved with genealogy in researching and writing family stories for over 30 years. In addition, she was privileged to work as a genealogist for the first season of the PBS Genealogy Roadshow program. Currently, she is a member of the Southern California Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (SCCAPG), the Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), the California State Genealogical Alliance (CSGA), the Polish Genealogical Society (PGS-CA), and the Genealogical Society of Hispanic America (GSHA-CA) as well as being Vice President of Programs for the Orange County California Genealogical Society (OCCGS). Over the last 7 years, she’s written and given several presentations on various topics for different groups in California and New Mexico, as well as teaching the Intermediate/Advanced class at her home group about twice a year. She is always in the process of writing new presentations. Her loves, in addition to public speaking, include history, writing, and traveling. She especially likes seeing how individual family stories fit in and make up the fabric of history.
