Glenn Wright speaks to Ukrainian Genealogy Group September Meeting

"The Ruryk Family in Canada: Research Challenge, Research Success” is the topic for BIFHSGO past president Glenn Wright's presentation to the Ukrainian Genealogy Group of the National Capital Region on Tuesday 27 September.
This presentation will describe both the challenge and success that he has had in researching his Ukrainian ancestors. He feared that his inability to speak or read Ukrainian would be an insurmountable obstacle, but using traditional genealogical resources, he has been able to document, in considerable detail, the story of his Ruryk family who emigrated from Galicia to rural Alberta prior to the Great War. Glenn will demonstrate his successful use of archival and published resources in his search for his Ukrainian roots..
This meeting will takes place at 7:30 pm at the St John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Hall, 952 Green Valley Drive, Ottawa. All welcome.
