BIFHSGO January Meeting

Bibles and Bugs: My Welsh Ancestors In and Out of Africa is the title of the main (10 am) presentation on Saturday, 11 January by Gail Roger

 "How does speaker Gail Roger owe her very existence to her great-great-uncle Thomas Lewis who died more than eighty years ago and had no children?  How did her very Welsh great-great-uncle and her equally Welsh maternal grandfather wind up on opposite sides of the African continent in two different centuries, one to build churches and the other to control the tsetse fly? Come to her presentation and learn why Uncle Thomas' posthumously-published autobiography about his missionary days in the Cameroons and the Congo both helped and hindered Gail's search for Welsh ancestors in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire." 
Dave Cross has posted an interview with Gail Roger to the BIFHSGO Podcast page.

Backups: Safeguarding Your Valuable Data is the 9 am presentation by Ken McKinlay who will provide an overview of the various ways to back up your valuable information.

This meeting, with two of my favourite speakers, is in the usual location, Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, Ontario.
