NFHS General Meeting

October 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Jamie Brown of Cloverdale Branch of Surrey Libraries, BC

Jamie will be digging into Ontario records.  She has been interested in family history since she was a young girl on her grandfather’s lap.  Being a part of a pioneering family in Surrey, BC, gave her something to talk about – and sparked her interest.  She spent years writing letters, trekking to cemeteries, archives and museums, and travelling, all on the genealogy quest.  And then came the internet – fast forward and full speed ahead!  In April 2011 she landed her “dream job” in the Family History Department at the Cloverdale branch of Surrey Libraries.  Her interests include solving puzzles of any kind, including family history brick walls, and loves helping others do the same.  Ontario is a great place to look for family history records, lots of land, lots of people equals lots of history!  We will dig into types of records such as census, vitals, probate, and land.  We will attempt to provide a “COVID-19” perspective on these records, and then also hit on a few “best bets” where we hope you can find some new insights into your family tree!
