The Time of Cholera

BIFHSGO's February monthly meeting features Alison Hare speaking on "The Time of Cholera"

Longtime BIFHSGO members may recall a Great Moments presentation by Alison some years ago about her ancestor who died in London’s cholera epidemic of 1854. This presentation takes the story of Dr. John Snow, the Broad Street water pump and a map, much further by identifying many of the forgotten victims using lesser known resources and careful research technique.

The meeting is at 10:00 a.m., 14 February 2009 at Library & Archives Canada 395 Wellington Street

At 9:00 am BIFHSGO President Mary Anne Sharpe will host a discussion "Charting the Future" a opportunity for members to discuss and influence future directions for the society.
