Finding Your Canadian Ancestors, and friends

I shall be bringing my copy of Finding Your Canadian Ancestors by Sherry Irvine and Dave Obee to the BIFHSGO conference this weekend to ask Sherry to sign it. It already has Dave Obee's signature. It's a book I highly recommend. Even though the cover reads "A Beginner's Guide," as Sherry told me, we thought it unlikely Ancestry would publish another Canadian genealogy book so aimed to be more widely useful than to just beginners.

If you don't yet own a copy of Finding Your Canadian Ancestors Global Genealogy is bringing in a supply of this, and Sherry's other books.

The conference looks like a hit, from Sherry's opening Don Whiteside lecture in the Library and Archives Canada Auditorium starting at 7:30pm on Friday, admission to that is free, to the prize draw at the closing session on Sunday afternoon with prizes donated by Ancestry.ca, World Vital Records, Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, and other products and services.

It's also a great social opportunity. I hope to see you there.
