RIP Elizabeth Stevens Stuart, Ottawa's senior genealogist,

I was saddened to read a notice of the passing on Wednesday of Elizabeth Stevens Stuart at age 105.

Elizabeth was BIFHSGO's oldest member and a long-time driving force in the family and local history community in Osgoode Township, now part of the City of Ottawa. Her legacy lives on in the resources at the Osgoode Township Historical Society and Museum where the meeting room is named in her honour.

Here is a newspaper article published to recognize her 104th birthday.
