Finding Great-Grandma’s Grandchildren - Durham's October 1st Meeting

Finding Great-Grandma’s Grandchildren: How do you find people of your parent’s generation? 

featuring one of our favourite speakers, Ruth Burkholder

Whether they were of the immigrant generation, thus born elsewhere, or the family had been here forever, finding people in the 1900s is hard work. This discussion will present some ideas to use to find them. Ruth Burkholder has successfully educated family historians for many years. She is well known for her ability to explain both simple and complex research activities in an easy to understand way. Most of all, Ruth has a knack of keeping the fun in it while providing proper methods and advice that comply with accepted genealogical research and recording practices.

Next Meeting - Tuesday - October 1, at 7:30 p.m.

at Northminster United Church (676 Simcoe St. N., Oshawa, ON L1G 4V7 (NW corner of Simcoe Street North and Rossland Road West).
