Genealogy Life is getting busy here again - not quite as normal, but much more happening! Looking forward to getting out and about more this summer.
Last weekend, I was at Greater Vancouver's Scandinavian Summer festival. Beautiful weather, very hot! And many visitors to the Scandinavian Cultural Society's Genealogy Room with questions! We do try to answer them all! Keep up with local Scandinavian events here - https://scancentre.org/
Coming up July 1st is THE Genealogy Show -
Get your tickets here: https://www.thegenealogyshowlive.com/plans/show-tickets/ I'm speaking on "A 12 Week Genealogy Year?" Come to hear me and find out all about it. Check out all the other great speakers too!
The Vancouver Genealogy Group continues to meet on Zoom, as do the Guild of One-Name Study members while the Lower Mainland Bookcrossing enthusiasts are meeting in person again (carefully, of course) and more.
Coming up in the Summer?
I'm speaking next week to the Maple Ridge Family History Group on "Why study a surname?" I know that some of this award winning group have surnames perfect for one-name studies! But really any surname can be done - with patience and collaboration. See more about the group's many projects here: http://mapleridgemuseum.org/about-us/family-history/
Our Scandinavian genealogists are off again in July to Eurofest in Maple Ridge, July 23rd/July 24th, 2022. No matter where your family is from, this will be a fun event. Keep up with the details here: https://www.europeanfestival.ca/
I'll be teaching genealogy classes again in the fall in person, I hope. And still Zooming too.
Stay tuned for more event news coming up.
