BIFHSGO February Meeting

There's a forecast high temperature of -21C on Saturday the 13th, likely the coldest day of winter 2015-16 in Ottawa. That's the coldest since 22 January 2005, colder than ever recorded in Ireland, although not as cold as record low temperatures recorded in England, Scotland, Wales -- or Battersea.

It will be even colder as the temperature rises mid-morning from the overnight low forecast of -27C, Sun is promised as people gather for the BIFHSGO monthly meeting.
The main event is A Scandal in Battersea presented by Gail Roger.
By the time he was 41, Gail Roger's great-grandfather had lost his five siblings to tuberculosis, drowning, laudanum, and cirrhosis of the liver. With a couple of nods to Sherlock Holmes and Jack the Ripper, Gail will share the tale of a scandal that took place in Battersea.
Come for 9:00 a.m. to hear the Before BIFHSGO Education Talk — Family Tree Maker is Defunct Family Tree Maker NOT is Defunct - What do I do now! by Rick Roberts. I'm wondering with the announcement that FTM will continue under new ownership how that will be presented.
At 9:30 a.m. browse the Discovery Tables — Learn what Global Genealogy and the Ontario Genealogical Society Ottawa Branch have to offer.
The meeting is open to members and visitors. Free admission and parking. The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa. More information about this meeting is available at in the Meetings section.
