Biography

Rebekah Canada was born in Northern California. However, much of the first ten years of her life were spent in and around San Diego. As a navy BRAT, she learned to expect frequent moves and to be her own company.

Always shy and self-conscious, she struggled with dyslexia. She overcame it to become an avid bookworm.

Rebekah fell in love with genealogy when she was seven. It began with a family history written by one of her maternal cousins. Over the months and many bags of pogan ginger cookies, she fell in love with the women of Colonial New England.

When she was ten, her mother, her siblings, and she moved from San Diego to Cottonwood, California. Though she had often spent vacations on her grandparents farm, life is a rural community was a culture shock to her. It is one that left her much aware of the social disparities between rural and urban America.

To fill her time, she immersed herself in reading and her love of the farm animals.

Eventually, she graduated from high school and enrolled at the local community college. While working on her undergraduate degree, she began researching the other branches of her family.

In 1997, she moved to Iowa City, Iowa. It would be her home for the next thirteen years. Then, in early 2010, she embarked on a chain of moves and travels that took her to Front Royal, Virginia, Corning, California, Eastern Kentucky, and eventually brought her to Texas.

Her interests include reading, genealogy, genetic genealogy, cats, dogs, fish, social justice, and especially bad puns.
