Canadian Newspaper Articles Every Monday

Don’t forget to check my blog every Monday morning for my New/Updated Canadian Websites, Blogs, and Newspaper Articles.

This week the blog will include a blog post by Mike More, the former chair of Ottawa Genealogical Society, who writes about TONI; you can take a ride on a Heritage Train travelling out of Josephburg, Alberta by viewing a YouTube video; read about “user-pay” services that may be introduced in a library in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, and a special YouTube interview by Lisa Louise Cooke with Dave Obee, Canadian genealogist.

So don’t miss the New/Updated Websites, Blogs, and Newspaper Articles blog on Monday April 15th.

It has been a regular blog every Monday since April 23, 2012.


Writing Family History

There will be a workshop called Writing Family History at the Eastern Townships Resource Centre.

This interactive workshop will give participants tips and guidance on how to capture the emotion of their family’s stories while avoiding the dreaded “chronological boredom” when writing family history with Tracey Arial and Janice Hamilton.

Registration is limited.

The workshop will be held May 11, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. It will be held at 2600 College, Bishop’s University Cleghorn Common Room, Sherbrooke (borough of Lennoxville)
