Janet Paulos Khashab is a third generation American of Mexican descent. Her father was born in San Antonio, Texas but grew up in Dallas. After serving in World War II, he worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Mexico as an interpreter, so Janet spent most of her pre-school years there. Her family returned to the Dallas area before she was seven but her Spanish language skills did not survive the transplant and she had to relearn them as an adult. Janet graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor’s degree in History. She taught English as a Foreign Language to university students for seven years and then worked at various university libraries as a research assistant for thirteen years before taking an early retirement. She has been tracing her Mexican roots for more than twelve years and received her accreditation in Mexican research in 2009.
Janet is currently on the Board of the Dallas Genealogical Society where she previously served as President and as Vice President for Education. She also served three years as secretary of HOGAR de Dallas (Hispanic Organization for Genealogy and Research).
Janet Khashab is accredited for research in Mexico.
