GETTING TO KNOW ME, GETTING TO KNOW CANADA GENEALOGY, OR, JANE'S YOUR AUNT
I'm a Vancouver born British Columbian, retired, they say, but busier than I ever was when I was working, I think. My research interests are in family history and Canadian women's history and I indulge myself in crumpled newspapers, dusty books, archival documents and historical photographs as often as possible.
I'm active in my local genealogical society - the British Columbia Genealogical Society - and in the Women's History Network of British Columbia. I give talks and workshops on various topics including researching female ancestors and researching family photographs, and I edit the B.C.G.S.'s quarterly journal, The British Columbia Genealogist.
Three of my 'best' articles:
The brightest - no idea - but, I'm picking this Christmas eve story. I like it even now and you'll learn a fair bit about my family here: http://canadagenealogy.blogspot.com/2007/12/christmas-eve-advent-calendar-of.html
The sassiest - that's easy, "Barbie and the Power of the Press": http://canadagenealogy.blogspot.com/2005/03/barbie-power-of-press.html
Barbie is not usually seen as a feminist icon, is she, but 'Go for it, girl!'
Here's a bonus article - about the title of my blog: http://canadagenealogy.blogspot.com/2005/02/janes-your-aunt-whats-with-this-title.html
The most beautiful - "Dinner Guests from the Past" - if only...: http://canadagenealogy.blogspot.com/2008/02/dinner-guests-from-past-vancouver-style.html
If you're interested in Canadian genealogy, keep an eye on my blog as I'm often writing about what's new or what's happening. And, I've got lots of opinions and once in a while I let them out, so if you have a comment (or a British Columbia/Canadian query), please write me.
