Genealogy is not fatal but it is a "grave" disease.

Attending a seminar is a good way to acquire information and learn more about your special interests.  There are opportunities to ask questions and talk to others who have the same "disease".  

Seminars in this area (Comox Valley,Campbell River and Parksville/Qualicum) are sponsored on a regular basis.

  • Travel Smart with Technology: Visiting an ancestral community is one of the greatest thrills.  The presentation is designed to help travelers, both real and virtual, to maximize their research into family connections outside Canada.  Includes web links.
  • Beyond the Online Basics: A genealogical guide to digital collections.  This session provides ideas on how to find the documents that will help you learn more about your families, or the local histories of the areas where they lived.  Includes web links.
  • A Fresh Light on old Newspapers:  Thanks to the many digitization projects, there are millions of newspaper pages on the Internet. What are the pitfalls? This presentation takes you through the digitization process, from hard copy to your computer screen.  It is designed to help you achieve the best results from your work.
  • Trinkets & Treasures:  Things Your Ancestors left Behind - Items that your ancestors used or created will help you to gain a better understanding of the lives they lived and serve as a reminder of times past.  Think of the stories they can tell!
