The genealogy stars shine brightly at this year’s BIFHSGO conference. They’re gathered together in four constellations.
First, on Wednesday, 28 September, two of the presentations are of particular Welsh interest: Migration and Wales by Gill Thomas and Researching Welsh Ancestry by Derek Blount. They follow My ancestor was a liar: ignorance, half-truths or wilful deceit? by Dave Annal. All our ancestors lied, even the ones that weren’t politicians!
To wrap up the first day, we return to Ottawa for The Journey to Genealogy Services at Ādisōke by Melissa Black (OPL), Robyn FeresCameron (LAC), Julie Roy (LAC).
The conference is spread out over four days. See the full schedule in pdf here.
It can be frustrating if information comes to us too quickly. BIFHSGO has arranged the schedule, so a 30-minute break follows each 60-minute talk.
