Kathleen Skeen, Registrar for Joshua D. Brown Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, is volunteering her services for Texas Lineage Research Day at the History Center in Kerrville.


Kathleen Skeen and several other qualified members of the Joshua D. Brown Chapter of DRT will assist with ancestry research, Saturday, Nov. 2, from 1 pm to 4 pm, in the History Center (Kerr Regional) located at 425 Water Street in Kerrville.
Skeen became interested in genealogy when she learned she was adopted shortly after birth. At about the age of 50, having been a homemaker and raising three sons with her husband Winston, she became very curious about her birth family. Along with her husband, Winston, they set out to learn what they could. The results were both surprising and amazing. She found she had a sister, a brother who had passed away, and a half brother. She was reunited with her sister and half brother and their relationship today is as if they had been raised together.
She currently serves as Registrar of both the local chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Skeen's goal is to help others in their quest to learn about their lineage. She is available to assist anyone desiring to know more about their lineage.
Kathleen Skeen resides in Medina and may be contacted at 830-589-7715 or email at kathwin@wireweb.net.
