Gary Boyd Roberts is widely acclaimed as an international expert on royal lineages. Formerly a member of staff at the New England Historic Genealogical Society, he is current Senior Research Scholar Emeritus there. On Saturday, March 24, 2012, he will provide a presentation entitled "Royal Descents of Some Living Americans", to honor the memory of the late Dan McConnell, formerly President of the Society, who passed away in September 2011.
This special memorial event will be open to Society members and the general public and will be held at the Brewster Ladies Library Auditorium beginning at 2:00PM. Members of the Howes, Lothropp, and Linnell Family associations will also be present, and books on royal lineages will be available for purchase. This presentation will be a rare privilege for members and others to learn first-hand about royal lineages and how they are widely distributed among present-day Americans. No fee will be needed for the event.
