This presentation gives an overview of the subject matter and looks at the big picture of researching immigrant ancestors.

Here is her Bio and Picture.

Anne E. Bowman, DDS

Anne Bowman was born and raised in the suburban Chicago area and has lived in San Diego for over 25 years. She attended Loyola University of Chicago for both her undergraduate and dental degrees and earned a Certificate of Specialty in Periodontics at LSU in New Orleans. She spent five years on active duty as a Navy Dental Officer before opening a private practice in Chula Vista, retiring from dentistry after 36 years of direct patient care.

Anne’s interest in genealogy had an unusual beginning. Both of her parents were only children so she grew up without any aunts, uncles or first cousins and she knew only one of her four grandparents. When her first niece was born in 1998 she decided to investigate as much of her family tree as possible. What began as a casual hobby has evolved into a new career.

She completed the Boston University Genealogical Research Program in 2010 and is a member of the Linares Chapter of the DAR. She is currently enrolled in the ProGen Study Club and her ultimate goal is to earn Certification from the Board of Genealogical Certification. She is a member of the National Genealogical Society, The Association of Professional Genealogists, The Polish Genealogical Society of America and The Southern California Genealogical Society.
