Linda R. Lucky, Speaker at Family History Day
While Linda and her husband, Ed, have been the Directors of the Sacramento Regional Family History Center for over two years, Linda has been actively engaged in family history research for nearly 30 years. Her “cemetery” tours have taken her to England, Scotland, Utah, Idaho, and deep into the Louisiana swamps. She has taken her ancestral research back eight generations from the United States to Scotland, England, and Denmark. Linda is a direct-line descendant of the Martin and Willie Handcart Companies of 1856 and is a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.
Linda completed the National Genealogical Society (NGS) American Genealogy: Home Study Course in 2003. In addition, she has completed all classes required for the Family History Certificate offered through Brigham Young University and is currently working on her certification from the Board of Certified Genealogists and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Family History. Linda still works full time but often consults to help others link their families together. She is a frequent speaker at the Sacramento Regional Family History Center and surrounding genealogy societies. She is also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, NGS, SVGHS, and Winn Parish (Louisiana) Genealogical Society. Family History is her PASSION!
