BIFHSGO at the Ottawa Stake LDS Family History Fair

Participants in the Ottawa Stake FHC on Saturday seemed to enjoy the presentations, as did the presenters. Here BIFHSGO members Lesley Anderson and Glenn Wright are able to smile despite both having recently passed landmark birthdays, events that they mentioned while giving a captivating talk on the census.

The BIFHSGO display table was much improved, largely thanks to the efforts of President Mary Anne Sharpe who seems to be holding something behind her back. She was pleased to have the display of flags, but is seeking similar ones for the Channel Islands of Jersey, Gurnsey, Alderney and Sark. I didn't notice flags for Herm, Jethou, Brecqhou, Lihou, the Isle of Man or Rockall either.

It was great to meet everyone at the LDS Family History Fair!

Thanks for the compliment on the display, John. For the record, we have the Isle of Man flag - also England, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland, Eire and the UK. It is the Channel Island flags that have so far proved elusive. There's apparently not much call for them here in Canada's Capital!
