The Staff and Friends of the Cos Cob Library and the Connecticut Ancestry Society welcome Rob Locke, who will present a free program entitled, Genealogy and Technology: Problems, Pitfalls, and Lots of Promise.  

This interactive session will begin with several slides and demonstrations by Rob Locke and continue with audience participation. Attendees are encouraged to bring any technology and genealogy questions they would like to have answered. Refreshments will be served. 

Rob Locke has been researching his family tree off and on since 1976 thanks to close relationships with his now-deceased grandparents, great-uncles, and great-aunts. Rob’s ancestry in the United States begins with the Great Migration to New England (1630s) with every northern European group arriving and marrying into the family. Rob has also served on the boards of Connecticut Ancestry Society, New England Regional Genealogical Consortium, and Locke Family Association. He is a member of numerous other genealogical societies.

Rob is employed in the technology industry, having spent most of his time teaching seminars, writing curriculum, and developing classroom lab environments. Rob has trained and mentored thousands of certified technology professionals over the last 30 years. More information about Rob can be found at where he keeps a public copy of his family tree.
