About the Event

Have you ever wanted to trace  your ancestry, but never knew where to start?  Begin your genealogy  journey with an introduction to how to navigate two of the most commonly  used ancestry tracking websites, Ancestry and Find a Grave. Theron  Rogers will tell us about his adventures on his motorcycle, the 1200  cemeteries he photographed and the fascinating graves he has discovered.

Location: CLE Lecture Hall

Presenter:   Theron Rogers: After a 40 year career with IBM, where he went from  computer builder to Field Engineer to Branch and Regional Manager,  Theron Rogers retired to Lake Lanier in Gainesville, GA in 1991.  since  his retirement, he has kept himself busy with real estate sales,  computer instruction and repairing old IBM clocks.  Most of all, though,  he likes to get on his Harley Davidson, or his Honda Goldwing trike  when his wife comes along.  They have biked all the lower 48 states,  plus five countries in Europe.  For the last 14 years, he has  photographed headstones in cemeteries as a volunteer for Find a Grave.
