John Lothrop Presentation by CCGS President
On Tuesday, October 28, 2010, beginning at 7pm, CCGS President Dan McConnell will give a presentation on the Reverend John Lothrop in regard to his stance for religious freedom and the migration of his congregation to Barnstable. Dan is an expert on this topic and is active in several genealogical societies related to the Lothrop story. He has also published two different articles in the Cape Cod Genealogical Society Bulletin, one on Lothrop and the roots of his church in England and America(Fall 2008), and another on the Howes, Lothrops, and Linnells of England and Barnstable (Fall 2007). This presentation which promises to be very informative will be given at the Sturgis Library in Barnstable Village, which also has a historic connection to the Lothrop family. All are welcome.
