Coming to the Comox Valley, 20 April

A reminder to those in the Comox Valley, Vancouver Island and nearby BC mainland of an opportunity to hear BIFHSGO President Glenn Wright and Lesley Anderson from Ancestry.ca at a full-day seminar in Courtenay on Saturday, April 20th. Glenn and Lesley are perennially popular genealogy speakers.
 
There are six presentations, the first starting at 8:45am:
 
Treasures in the Parish Chest
They Came by Ship ... Finding Immigrant Ancestors Before 1865
Archives Revealed… Using Archival Resources, Online and On Site
Online Books ... Where to Find Them, How to Use Them
Wills and Probate
Getting Here From There – Immigration Records on Ancestry and Elsewhere 1865 - 1965
 
Norma O'Toole informs me there are still a few tickets available. The registration cut-off date is April 15th.
 
For more information and registration check out the Comox Valley Family History Research Group website at www.cvfamilyhistory.org/seminars.html

Thank you John for this heads up. I attended the 2012 BIFHSGO Conference and appreciate the calibre of the Ottawa members. Very excited that two of them are coming out to Vancouver Island.
