Lifetime Learning Centre presents "Your Genealogy Goals", the first of a series of four programs on genealogy by John Herl, on Wednesday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to noon at 32444 Seventh Ave., Mission. BC. Cost for the 4-part series is $25/members, $30/non-members.
Also, take a minute and look at the Virtual Quilt that is on their site at www.lifetimelearningcentre.org/oral-history.html.
The website says that "The virtual quilt is a multimedia format using the Internet and our website to access Mission history. By clicking on a photograph within the quilt you are accessing our collection of Mission histories.
To date we have collected more than 125 Oral Histories showcasing our diversity, distinctiveness, and determination as a community".
What an inventive program for every genealogical society to try to do!
If your society has done an oral history project like this one, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let me advertise it to the world that such a project exists.
