There will be an end-of-the-day wrap-up plus lots of opportunities to ask questions and share experiences!

A delicious light meal and refreshments will be provided. And there are great door prizes for lucky participants, including a year’s subscription to FindMyPast.com and a year’s membership in the BC Genealogical Society!
