There is no cost for this workshop.
According to their press release, "After a brief introduction to Canadian military records, each participant will be given a real Canadian Expeditionary Forces service file of a Nova Scotian soldier or nursing sister, with the task of finding out their personal war story. At the end of the workshop, participants will share their discoveries and questions with the rest of the group. Halifax Public Library staff Joanne McCarthy O'Leary and Vicki Clark will be on hand to assist with research and advice on further research. Please see flyer attached with times and location".
This is restricted to 25 participants, so register soon to secure your spot.
