BIFHSGO December meeting

The December BIHSGO Great Moments in Genealogy session is always a favourite.

This time the topics and speakers are:
  • How I Found 'Uncle Effie' While Helping to Research a WWII Pilot, by Mary Anne Sharpe
  • Professor Robinson – Where did you come from? by Roberta Kay
  • Revelations in a Paper Bag and a Shoe Box, by Anne Sterling (listen to a brief interview here)
  • Fun Boy, Fly Boy, My Reclusive Uncle, by Ted Lawrence
The meeting starts at 10am on Saturday, 10 December. The location is the auditorium at Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, which is where the meetings are planned to remain in 2012.

The December issue of Anglo-Celtic Roots will be available for members to collect. Editor Jean Kitchen has been working hard to solicit writers. It's paid off in this issue, I've seen some of the content.  

There will also be the usual Discovery Tables on England, Ireland & Scotland to browse and meet with family history experts; refreshments and good company.
