The British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO) always hosts good monthly meetings, and this month looks equally good. The meeting is free and open to all who register for this virtual meeting.
Kicking off the meeting on Saturday, February 10 is Ken McKinlay with his Back to Basics series about British census records, followed by Diane Rogers’ presentation about finding female ancestors.
Back to Basics series — Census Records by Ken McKinlay
We will be looking at the various census records, and possible census substitutes, that can help us research our ancestors from the British Isles
Researching Female Ancestors What Could They Tell Us? by Diane Rogers
Researching female ancestors can be frustrating. Sometimes even their obituaries say almost nothing. Diane will provide examples of strategies to use in searching genealogical sources for information about women and in learning about women’s history resources.
