2525 E. Ball Road, Anaheim (one block off the 57 freeway at Ball Road)

Luncheon and speaker. Our speaker will be genealogist Linda Serna. Her topic will be: “Genealogy as Detective Work”. “Genealogy as Detective Work” highlights the skills used by both detectives and genealogists to solve mysteries and explores how to reason through a genealogical challenge by using the tools of a detective and using indirect evidence. It includes specific examples as well as case studies showing how to find and put together information that at first seems elusive.

Linda Serna has been involved with researching and genealogy for more than 40 years and was privileged to work on the first season of Genealogy Roadshow on PBS. Besides belonging to several organizations, including the Genealogical Speakers Guild, a member of the National organization of Association of Professional Genealogists, and she was the past program chair for the Orange County California Genealogical Society and past treasurer for the SCCAPG.   Her loves include history, writing, and traveling. She especially likes seeing how individual family stories fit in and make up the fabric of history.
