Another brick in the wall! One of the most successful programs we’ve offered is back. Our experts, Diane, Brenda, and Peter, return to share their thoughts on overcoming difficult Family History challenges.

The panel members will then individually meet attendees who have submitted questions in advance for 1-on-1 fifteen minute consultations. While this is happening our special guest speaker Laurie Cooke will address the main group.

Laurie’s talk: Did They Hang the Wrong Man? examines the truth behind a 1908 Fraser Valley murder. In 1908 there was a murder in the Fraser Valley at Hall’s Prairie. Many were arrested, but ultimately one man was hung. But did they get it right? Come join our special guest speaker Laurie Cooke and with the help of coroner records, court records, and news clippings all will be revealed.

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

A light meal and refreshments will be provided.
