This Saturday: BIFHSGO AGM and Great Moments

On Saturday, following the BIFHSGO Annual General Meeting chaired by Society President Barbara Tose at 9 am, there's the popular semi-annual Great Moments in Genealogy session with:

Tara Grant presenting Elizabeth White, Elizabeth Dwight or Elizabeth Jones? Mother of 39 and My 8x Great-Grandmother,
Ken McKinlay on Misplaced Twigs on a Branch
Lesley Anderson Digging Up the Bownes in My Family Tree
John D. Reid on Tragedy at Sea: How My Family History Nearly Ended Before It Began

In between enjoy Discovery Tables with Patricia Barlosky, genealogy librarian at the Nepean Centrepointe Library sharing information about Ottawa Public Library resources; Brenda Turner displaying a field name map and documents related to an area of Northhamptonshire and; Bryan Cook profiling the book he has written about the life of William Pittman Lett, Ottawa's first city clerk and bard.

That's at the old Nepean Council Chambers, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Nepean.
