CAGGNI Proudly Presents

Are You Related to Someone Famous?

by Bob Allen

Saturday, 15 July 2017
10:30 a.m.

Schaumburg Township Public Library

A really fun aspect of genealogy is identifying "famous people" who are related to you.

We will talk about initial steps; how to prepare to do your research; helpful websites like gene.com; famouskin and abcgenealogy; ways to explain your discoveries; and how being related to a famous person can lead you to other relatives.

We will learn about the genealogies of Davy Crockett, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Adams, Tom Hanks, Laura Welch Bush, Ling John "Lackland" of England, Ann Boleyn and others.

Bob Allen received a BA in political science and an MBA from the University of Kansas.

He then graduated from the University of Texas Law School in Austin, Texas.

Now retired, he held executive positions with Container Corporation of America and Baxter Healthcare.
