I'm always happy to connect with anyone interested in genealogy and history. 

Sign up for CanadaGenealogy News below.

And if I can help you with tracing women, or Canadian or Scandinavian genealogy, or your DNA results or questions, I'm doubly happy.

I teach genealogy classes regularly in Greater Vancouver. 

I give talks and do workshops and webinars relating to genealogy year round. Let me know if you're looking for a speaker or workshop leader, whether for general interest or for specific topics. Learn more about my experience and topics here. 

Come and meet up with me at an event or connect with me on social media, via e-mail or even -  by telephone. But I warn you either Twitter or e-mail is best as I'm not home much. Too busy doing genealogy! I do my best to answer e-mails and messages in a timely manner.
