Speaker: Joan Gunn
Joan is a Graduate of Vassar College, Bachelor of Arts and well-trained in research in original sources, she has a California teacher's credential (taught evenings at American River Community College). Sometime around the late 1980s she got to her German ancestors and has been hooked on German genealogy ever since, leading to many trips to Salt Lake and Germany.
She has researched in the records of over 60 German churches. She volunteers at the Eastern Avenue Family History Center giving advice on German research on Thursday afternoons. She is also the Baden-Wurttemberg mentor for the Sacramento German Genealogy Society, and is posted on WorkGenWeb as a research advisor who also does look-ups for Wurttemberg.
