BIFHSGO October monthly meeting

Come to Library and Archives Canada on Saturday morning, 11 October 2008, for a presentation by BIFHSGO Member, Margaret Burwell with the title "Jennie's Journey: Reconstructing a Life from Letters and Diaries."

Margaret found a collection of over 500 letters written by or to her great grandmother Jennie Clarissa Sherman (nee Galer). It helped explain the mystery of a long distance move in the 1870s, late in her life.

That presentation starts at 10 am, but come at 9 am to catch Lesley Anderson, BIFHSGO Associate Education Director, speaking on "Searching Online with Ancestry.com."
