Linda Serna

I have been involved with genealogy in researching and writing family stories for over 30 years. I have also been privileged to work as a genealogist for the first season of the PBS Genealogy Roadshow program. Currently, I am 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 serving as Vice President of Programs for the Orange County California Genealogical Society (OCCGS). Over the last 7 years, I’ve written and given several presentations on various topics for groups in California and New Mexico, and have taught Intermediate and Advanced genealogy classes at my home group. I am always in the process of writing new presentations. My loves, in addition to public speaking, include history, writing, and traveling. I especially like seeing how individual family stories fit in and make up the fabric of history.
