The Genealogical Society of North Orange County
Ethnic Groups: They Came to America
Having a hard time finding some of those transplanted European ancestors? In this presentation, we will examine Polish, German, French, Belgium Walloon, Irish and Italian immigrants: where they came from, when and why they came, and where they went in America.
First bitten by the genealogy bug at 12, Linda Serna has focused the last 20 years on tracing her Polish, French and German roots, and her husband’s lines to the 1500s in New Mexico. She has made numerous presentations to genealogy groups in Southern California and New Mexico, and periodically teaches the Intermediate/Advanced class at the Orange County California Genealogical Society (OCCGS). Ms. Serna is Vice-President of Programs for OCCGS and is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Genealogical Speakers Guild, the Polish Genealogical Society, and the Genealogical Society of Hispanic America.
