Linda Hudson is a native Houstonian and grew up in Lindale Park on the northside of Houston. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Education from Texas A&M University and a Master’s in Public Health from the University of South Florida. Linda, over the course of 26 years, has served in Aldine, Houston, and Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School Districts. In 2016, she retired.

Her family research has yielded unexpected results. These include finding the branch of her maternal line whose great-great-grandfather changed his last name upon arrival to Texas, a paternal sixth times great grandfather, a Quaker, who
arrived in Pennsylvania in the 1600s with William Penn, and a great-great aunt who survived a ship’s maiden voyage across the Atlantic that sunk off the coast of Newfoundland, known in history as a coffin ship. The joy of the research is not only finding these great histories, but the people met on the journey. Genealogy is a gift that keeps on giving.

Linda is an active volunteer for the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo, a member of Harris County Master Gardener’s, and a rancher. She also continues serving Texas by teaching Adult Basic Education for those pursuing completion of a GED. Four adult children, three grandkids, 2 beagles, and a doxie keep Linda and her husband on the go!
