About the Author of this Report

Roger D. Joslyn, CG, FASG, is a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists and the Utah Genealogical Association. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Davis. A full-time genealogist since 1978, he became a Certified Genealogist in 1981. He is a member of numerous genealogical organizations, including the New England Historic Genealogical Society, where he was a part-time staff member from 1978 to 1982; the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, where he serves on the Education and Publication Committee and the Library Committee; and the National Genealogical Society, where he has served on program committees for the organization’s annual Conference in the States. For the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference held in Rochester, New York, in August 1996, he was the program chair. He is a former trustee for the Board of Certification of Genealogists, a founding member and current vice president of the Genealogical Speakers Guild, a member of the New York Archival Services Advisory Committee, and a past president, former trustee, and former Editorial Advisory Board member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG). In 1994 he received APG’s Grahame Thomas Smallwood, Jr. Award of Merit. His many lectures in the United States and Canada have included New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania topics, as well as census, naturalization, and immigration records, compiling a genealogy, and using and becoming a professional genealogist.

A genealogical writer, his articles have appeared in The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, The American Genealogist, The Genealogist, The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, The Mayflower Descendant, and several other national publications. He is the indexer to the first three of these journals and many of the Mayflower Families volumes, the editor/compiler of the two-volume Vital Records of Charlestown, Massachusetts, the author of the Mid-Atlantic state chapters in Ancestry’s Red Book, and a reviewer and the indexer of Robert Charles Anderson’s volumes for The Great Migration Study Project. Currently he is compiling and editing volumes of early New York tax records (with Anita Lustenberger, CG) and early vital records of Hampshire County, Massachusetts.

Much of his genealogical activities are concentrated in the northeast, but research has often taken him to other parts of the country and has included obtaining information from European countries. In recent years he has assisted Native American groups who are seeking Federal Recognition from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Mr. Joslyn lives in the Hudson Valley of New York with his wife Barbara, two sons, and three cats.
