Alice Marwood cutting BCGS Annniversary Cake, 2011An excellent party last night at the BCGS Christmas Social – the 2011 Most Improved Genealogists were announced, winners of the BCGS 2011 Family History Award attended, there was a look at our new website, and a record number of members’ family history displays – so much to look at, discuss and celebrate with other genealogists.

This is the end of our 40th year so of course, there was a cake. And what a great cake!

The next general membership meeting of the BC Genealogical Society is December 14, 2011, 7:30pm at the Edmond Community Centre in Burnaby. This is traditionally a less formal meeting, starting with the incredible book sale, members’ family history displays, goodies, prizes and a whole lot more.

Presentations to the 2011 winners of the BCGS Most Improved Genealogist Awards will be made and the winners of the BCGS first annual Family History Book Awards have been invited as special guests. Some will bring book copies to sign and sell.

Bring a guest and come renew your membership while you are there.  Bring pocket books to donate to the book sale, and some baking too, if you can.
