Scandinavian Midsummer June 2013, Burnaby BC at the Scandinavian Cultural Centre. Thank you to all the BC Genealogical Society and Scandinavian Cultural Society genealogy volunteers. The Scandinavian Genealogy group will meet at the Centre again starting this fall.

We hope it’s a simple process for you – it’s a text chat, so you should be able to just type into the box above. This year, we will be trying out a number of ‘new to us’ communication tools – via live chat, Skype, Google Hangout, maybe even a Facebook or Twitter text chat.
2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I and already a number of research and display projects are underway.
Take the time now to review the World War I participants in your family tree and to enhance your research or understanding of their roles whether at home or in service.
Consider submitting an article to a genealogical or historical journal or a photograph to a website. If you have Canadian relatives who died in service during World War I, check to see if you have digital photographs or other memorabilia to add to the Canadian Virtual War Memorial, sponsored by Veterans Affairs Canada.
