Joan Johnson-Publications Director
Joan Johnson is the new PCGS Publications Director effective July 1, 2016. She has been a member of PCGS since 2012 and also has memberships with the Illinois State Genealogy Society and the Tazewell County Genealogy and Historical Society. Joan has been a Physical Therapist Assistant since 1976 and is employed in Peoria.
She became interested in Genealogy about 12 years ago. Her mother is a first generation American as her mothers’ parents were immigrants from Germany. Joan’s great-uncle was still in communication with family in Germany. Joan notes “It has been difficult trying to get information from Germany and I would like to visit in the next couple of years. I am currently researching my paternal grandmother’s family to see if I am eligible to be a part of DAR.”
