News and views on genealogy, especially in British Columbia. The chat is coming up Wednesday, 30 September, at 7 pm, Pacific time, right here at www.bcgs.ca
Ooops! Somehow I gave the wrong date for the Genealogy Do-Over start – it is this Friday as I said, but Friday 2 Oct. 2015 (not Oct. 9 as I said). Here’s a weblink with all the info: http://ow.ly/SRo7j
Our December 2015 theme offers writers a great deal of latitude. Want to write about someone who was a blacksmith or a milliner? Or a suffragette or an orator, a British Home Child, or even a forger or a bigamist?
Any length is acceptable. Journal deadline is November 9, 2015. Please contact the Editor if you have questions or ideas to discuss. editor @ bcgs.ca
The BCGS Research links on this website include Occupations. (If you have new links to suggest for this section, please e-mail webmaster @ bcgs.ca )
To start you off with some ideas, here is Marianne Soltau’s index to a series on ‘Old Occupations’ in the Family Tree Magazine (UK). These magazines are all available in our Library, as are many other related books and articles.
