Teresa Parham discovered that her connection to California was actually in her genes. Not only will she tell you her family's story, but she'll share with you what has given her inspiration, both personally and artistically.
Even though her motto is “results are not always typical,” Teresa feels that “sharing the journey” is universal for those interested in knowing their family’s history.
What’s her story?
Through dedicated research, Teresa’s mother discovered that F.C. Ewer, Teresa’s paternal 4th great grandfather, had spent some time in California during the 1850s.
Teresa Parham is the Teen Services Librarian at the Pleasanton Public Library.
As the child of a U.S. Naval officer who has lived all around the world, Teresa’s culturally rich and rewarding life experiences have given her a unique perspective on genealogy. Her roots have now been firmly planted in California for the past 14 years.
