This genealogy session should be of interest to many. I know Laurie Cooke and I'm sure this will be well worth going to. I hope to attend myself.

Finding out about your First Nations ancestors is not something covered in most genealogy books. Whether you are exploring your heritage, you need to prove your genealogy for First Nations status, or you are following up on an aboriginal ancestor in your family story, finding out about specialized resources can be a good first step. Pick up some tips and find out how Vancouver and Surrey Public Libraries' genealogy collections and services can help you on this path.

Laurie Cooke graduated from the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies at UBC 2004 and became a Librarian, at both SFU and Surrey Public Library. She found a permanent position in the Surrey Public Library's Cloverdale Genealogy department shortly afterwards and has never looked back.

Seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
