Now that Fall is officially here those of us in Ottawa should make sure to circle Saturday, 15 October for the annual Ryan Taylor Memorial Lecture.
If you have immigrant ancestors, and who doesn't, you will enjoy the lecture, this year given by New-England based Leslie Albrecht Huber. She has Swedish, German and English (Buckinghamshire) ancestry and her talk The Journey Takers, is also the title of her recent award winning narrative nonfiction book.
You can read more about Leslie and the context for her family history at her website: www.understandingyurancestors.com
The talk, sponsored by the Ottawa Branch of OGS, is in the auditorium of Library and Archives Canada, starts at 10am, and is free to attend.
