About Nancy Peralta
Nancy Fermazin Peralta, BSN, MSN grew up in Aurora, Illinois, and currently resides in Buena Park, California. She earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing from California State University, Dominguez Hills, California and a Master of Science in Nursing, with a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Gerontology.
Nancy became an avid genealogist/family historian in 1995. She had always wanted to know more about her ancestors and who they were, where they came from and how they influenced her life. She started her journey in 1995 by connecting with a Worthing cousin. This was a serendipitous experience and the Worthing and Ingram branches of her family history fell into place.
Nancy joined a Lifestyle Writing Class in 2004 to learn how to write better capturing the flesh and bones of her ancestors rather than just names, dates and places. She takes Digital Scrapbooking classes to enhance her writing. This is an on-going learning experience.
Nancy co-authored a Family History on her Linden Family with her cousin Laura Linden Freeman. The book they published is called: Lindens of Aurora Illinois: Where They Came From to Where They Were.
Nancy is married and has one son and two grandsons. She has compiled a 4 volume family history scrapbook which includes the Fermazin, Pluecker, Ames, Worthing, Ingram, Linden, Pott families along with many scrapbook albums of her life and vacations.
