Topic: “Tales to Docs to Stories: Building Your Family Story From Family Tales and Documents” presented by Linda Serna
Linda has been involved with genealogy in researching and writing family stories for over 35 years. In addition, she was privileged to work as a genealogist for the first season of Genealogy Roadshow on PBS. Currently, she is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (past Treasurer for the Southern California group), Genealogical Speakers Guild, the Polish Genealogical Society, and the Genealogical Society of Hispanic America and past Vice President of Programs for the Orange County California Genealogical Society. Over the last 9 years, she has written and given several presentations on various topics for different groups in California and New Mexico. 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.
Programs feature speakers with expertise on various issues relating to genealogy. Program meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of every month (except December).
Everyone is welcome to attend! The programs are free and open to the public. Reservations are not needed.
