A GENEALOGICAL JOURNEY – Ron LaPlante

June Webinar

It all started when Ron inherited a 20-gallon Tupperware container of snapshots from his parents. Luckily, some had names and dates written on them. Thus began his journey of researching and documenting two branches of his Paternal Family Tree – drawing him back to 1600.

Besides building the family tree, he also documented key findings in a 300-page family history book – distributing 85 copies of both to his immediate family. At present, he is writing a novel based on the exploits of his great (X7) grandmother…

Join in the dialogue with Ron as we discuss the ins and outs, ups and downs of Family Tree research.

Date: Monday, June 13 at 7:00 pm E.D.T.

Finding Them on the Ground in Ontario

One of the challenges we face when trying to pinpoint where our rural Ontario ancestors lived is finding records with information such as the township, concession and lot. Knowing this information is the starting place for finding land instruments such as deeds and even wills. In this presentation Ken McKinlay will show us how to find that information using census records, directories, voters’ lists, and other publically available records.

Our September Bruce County Genealogical Society Webinar

The Secrets of the Radar Museum

Maya Hirschman is the curator for the “Secrets of Radar Museum” in London, Ontario. This small museum was created to tell a story of the more than 6,000 Canadian World War II veterans who were recruited into a top-secret project involving radar. Drawn from every walk of life, and sent around the world, these veterans were held to an Oath of Secrecy that was not fully lifted until 1991. Maya will share some of these intriguing stories.
