Please pre-register on-line. A $5. box lunch can be ordered on-line as well when you register. Hot apple cider and herbal teas will be available for sale. No coffee as this seminar is at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - church members abstain from coffee. Please see the FAQ at the Seminar website (link above).

I'll be leading the BCGS Walter Draycott Library session. Don't hesitate to ask for me - I will be around the BC Genealogical Society tables for part of the day at least.
