Arthur Charles Owen was born in Cape Tormentime, New Brunswick, the third of five children of William Lee Owen and Edythe May Oulton. The job transfers of his father meant he attended school in Montreal, Kentville, Hartland and Rothesay Collegiate before moving on to Queen's University (B. Sc. (Eng)) and the University of Waterloo (M. Math.).
Arthur was initially employed by Systems Dimensions Limited (SDL) as a Systems Programmer and later as Manager, Hardware Support. Following the purchase of SDL and merger with DataCrown, Arthur left the company and was employed by Technitronic and then DMR & Associates before becoming a self-employed IT Consultant. He is now retired.
Arthur got interested in genealogy while at university and over the years, with the assistance of many cousins, has worked on researching his ancestors as well as all descendants of five ancestral couples, namely:
Most of this research is available on his website Our Maritime Ties.
