|Antonia Maltos Davis, great-grand-aunt of Linda and Stella Allison|
Two things that will be new with this issue are a message from the president, in place of the previous message from the editor, and a regular column on genealogical methods by Certified Genealogist® Rondina Muncy. In addition to those, here are some teasers on the articles you will find:
Stella and Linda Allison wrote about their great-grandfather's sister, a Mexican immigrant to San Francisco who moved up economically from her beginnings in Mazatlán. Scott McKinzie used DNA and old-fashioned paper research to determine who his grandfather was. Joe Reilly and Tim Cox have stories about their relatives who served and died in World War II. Kathleen Javdani dove into research on her great-grandmother, trying to find if the information in a family narrative matched reality. And Carolyn Ervin wrote about memories of her own great-grandmother, whom she was fortunate enough to meet shortly before the latter passed away.
