“Tales to Docs to Stories: Building Your Family Story from Family Tales and Documents”
Many of us have family lore passed on by our ancestors that we want to add to our genealogical research but don't know how to present it. Linda's talk addresses through specific examples how to build a story from the tales we’ve been told, the documents we have and other sources available. Then, it gives things to consider once it is time to write the story. Finally, it also gives ideas for sharing that story once we’ve put something together.
Linda has been involved with genealogy in researching and writing family stories for over 30 years. She also worked as a genealogist for the first season of the PBS Genealogy Roadshow program. Currently, she is Treasurer for the Southern California Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (SCCAPG), and a member of the Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), the Polish Genealogical Society (PGS-CA), and the Genealogical Society of Hispanic America (GSHA-CA) and am past Vice President of Programs for the Orange County California Genealogical Society (OCCGS). She has written and given presentations on various topics for different groups in California and New Mexico and continues to develop new presentations as the field changes. 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.
