Jane Macnamara
Jane Macnamara - Inheritance Interrupted: WW1 reflected in Ontario Estate files The sudden deaths of so many young Canadian sons (and daughters) changed the normal patterns of inheritance. However, the accompanying records are extremly useful for genealogy.

Jane is a well-known genealogist and an entertaining speaker. She is the author of Inheritance in Ontario: Wills and Other Records for Family Historians, published by Dundurn and the Ontario Genealogical Society in 2013.

Also, at this meeting we will have the following items:
Brick Wall Bomb - a 10 minute brainstorming session on a problem from the audience 
Mini-Talk (10 minutes) - free software for auto creation of citations

Jane has graciously given permission for her session to be live streamed. The link will be posted on our website (just above the notice of the meeting) shortly before the meeting begins. The session will not be recorded.
