Linda Johnson began her own family history search in 1988 when enrolled in an undergraduate class at CSU, Sacramento. She went on to receive her Master of Arts degree in Public History in 1993. As a graduate student, she interned at the California State Archives for three years and at the San Joaquin County Historical Society for 6 months. After graduation, she worked as assistant archivist at the Sacramento Archives and Museum Collection Center, now known as the Center for Sacramento History. In 1996, she accepted a position as collections manager for the manuscript and archival collections at Shields Library, UC Davis.
Linda Johnson will be presenting two sessions:
Genealogical Resources at the California State Archives will include a description of the millions of paper documents, maps, photographs, three–dimensional artifacts, and records in other formats such as audiotape and videotape held there.
Cussin' Cousins will be an open forum in which Linda will help beginning genealogists break through brickwalls.
