Kirsty Gray in Ottawa

The Special Genealogy Presentation on Sunday, sponsored by the Ottawa Branch Ontario Genealogical Society and the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa, was a great success. About 132 people squeezed into the Woodroffe United Church banquet hall to hear Kirsty Gray deliver two lectures: Solving Problems Through Family Reconstruction and Searching for Surnames: Challenges, Pitfalls and the Downright Ridiculous.

Advice and tips were provided on levels of family reconstruction, things to consider in family reconstruction and how to do it. Tips on searching the internet were also provided, with examples of interesting (ridiculous) items found in the census.

Hopefully we will have more events like this.
