We’ll be ‘attending’ the Fair at the BCGS Library in Surrey BC from 10 am to 1 pm (our time) both days, so come & join us. Bring your laptop if you have one. There’s WIFI available.
We’ll have coffee, tea and some sweets, and if you’d like lunch, you can either bring one or pick something up at a nearby coffee shop or store.
The BCGS Walter Draycott Library will be open 10 am to 3 pm on Tuesday as usual, and both days you’ll have access to the Library’s collections and to the on-line databases available, including American Ancestors, Ancestry Library Edition, and the Genealogical Research Library.
If you are too far away to join us in person, watch for us on Twitter bcgs_ca and Facebook. Watch and comment on the Twitter feed already right here at the www.bcgs.ca home page – on your right. The NARA Genealogy Fair hashtag is #genfair2013 We’re sure many genealogists and family historians will be participating on-line.
