Are you ready to track your ancestors?
It's time for another genealogy fair!
This time. I'm going to the fair which will be held Saturday, August 22nd in Stirling-Rawdon (near Trenton and Peterborough in Ontario) at the Stirling Senior School on St. James Street.
I knew that the fair was quite old and had been held a number of summers in this quaint little village, but this will be the first year that I am going.
It is an all-day affair, and will feature Fawne-Stratford Devai (who works on the television series, “Ancestors in the Attic”) and her talk entitled, “Leaving Ontario: Resources of Tracking Ontario Migrants”, as well as Dr. David R. Elliott’s two lectures, “Digital Techniques for Reading Difficult Tombstones” and “Treasure in the Family Bible: Methodologies for Discovering Family History”.
I can’t wait to hear both of them because I have a few questions of my own that I would be love to get answers to.
The fee is very reasonable, and you can register online before August 1st by downloading the registration form at <www.stirling-rawdon.com/2009_files/genealogy_fair_form09.pdf> or you can register at the door on the day of the conference. But be there early because doors open at 8:30!
Also, visit <www.stirling-rawdon.com/stirling_rawdon_genealogy.html> and take a look at their historical society, where they keep a genealogy room.
The contact person to get in touch with, if you wish to register, is Pat Marshall of Stirling. Her email address is <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
If you come to the fair, please take a moment to say “Hi!” - I would love to meet you.
