Recognition for Brenda Dougall Merriman

Congratulations to Brenda Dougall Merriman on well deserved recognition by the Board for Certification of Genealogists as an Emeritus Member.

A Toronto resident and long-time OGS member, Brenda was for many years one of very few Canadians with BCG certification. She served as a Board Trustee and founded the Ontario Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists.

Author of the widely referenced books Genealogical Standards of Evidence, Genealogy in Ontario and, United Empire Loyalists: A Guide to Tracing Loyalist Ancestors in Upper Canada, Brenda continues to contribute to family history, and celebrate her passion for camels, through her blog at https://brendadougallmerriman.blogspot.ca/.

Brenda established courses for the National Institute for Genealogical Studies. Institute Managing Director Louise St Denis commented on Brenda’s "meticulous methodology skills (that) made her the perfect author/instructor to be on the team to prepare the three part group of courses called the Analysis & Skills Mentoring Program" and that she "was terrific at making sure that everything that was in print was the most accurate it could be."
