Title: Did I Marry an Axe Murderer?! The Story of Juan Corona
Summary: In 1971, the farm workers of northern California were shaken by the conviction of Juan Corona. I was similarly shaken to learn that my husband might be related to him. This presentation offers a case study for proving (or disproving!) relationships using Mexican church/civil records, immigration, and historical sources.
