About This Site
Colleen & Jeff’s Roots (formerly “Greene Roots” and “Colleen’s Connections”) is owned and published by Colleen (Robledo) Greene, MLIS. It is simply a single visible spot for me to compile and share any genealogy research, leads, and inquiries that I choose to make public.
I have published a family history website continuously since 2004, running off of whatever platform I was favoring at the time: TNG, Omeka, Blogger, WordPress, TNG again, and now WordPress again. This current iteration runs on a self-hosted WordPress instance, utilizing a custom child theme, custom taxonomies, and custom post types.
I am a librarian, web developer, genealogist, historian, and educator who teaches and presents on genealogy, web content strategy, social media, digital history tools, and other emerging technology tools and topics. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History, a Masters of Library & Information Science, and a certificate in genealogical research from Boston University. I am the the Marketing Librarian at California State University, Fullerton, and am an instructor with the San Jose State University School of Information for whom I teach a graduate-level semester-long genealogy research methods class each summer.
Read my genealogy, technology, and cultural heritage tips and reviews on my professional blog.

On a personal note, I am a native Californian, who has spent most of my life in beautiful Orange County. I am married to the nicest wittiest guy in the world, am bonus mom to two awesome young adults, and am slave to my fur baby the adorable Holly Beagle.
