This FREE program will be from 10:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in The Learning Center (TLC).
Larry Naukam holds degrees in Geography, Library Science, and Divinity. He has written for genealogical publications for more than 30 years. He is very interested in the intersection of computers and genealogy research.
Larry Naukam has more than 30 years of experience with public library reference work including years in Acquisitions, Cataloging, the Bookmobile, and his favorites: Genealogy, Local History, and Digitizing. He has written for Genealogical Computing, GenWeekly, the In-Depth Genealogist and a Rochester History pamphlet “Family History more than Genealogy” which was published in 1990 by the Rochester City Historian. He gives many talks each year, and is currently involved with the Rochester Genealogical Society as their President and their VP for programs; the Digital Public Library of America; the Church Records Preservation Committee of the RGS; and as a volunteer scanner and cataloger for various local historical societies, libraries and town historians in New York State. He is happy that the RGS has received a national award from the Federation of Genealogical Society called the Outstanding Society Technology Award for 2017-2018.
