|BCGS Walter Draycott Library shelf, 2013|
This is our free Library Week - anyone can come and see what BCGS has at its Walter Draycott Library in Surrey, BC, get some help if they are starting out with genealogy or have hit an obstacle in their research. Many stay all day and attend the classes we offer each day to learn something new. It's always great to meet and talk to both the newbies and others who've been doing genealogy a while. We all can learn so much from each other.
This week there have been two Canadian Geneabloggers here besides myself, Celia Lewis and Yvonne Demoskoff.
Celia blogs at Twigs and Trees. She has some great surnames in her family! (I'm a bit jealous.) Her last post is about her GILLESPIE-ARMSTRONG families though. Do have a look in case you have a connection there.
And Yvonne, who writes Yvonne's Genealogy Blog, has just started Doukhobor Photos, featuring photographs from the Demoskoff family albums. She's hoping to identify some of the people and places in the photos which are from Saskatchewan and British Columbia, Canada. Drop by, have a good look and let Yvonne know if you can help.
