Come join Anne Goeden, Erin Netzke, Lolly Fullerton for a coffee to discuss DNA. It’ll be for any member who is wondering whether to take a DNA test, who has taken a DNA test but doesn’t know what to do with it, or who, like us, loves using DNA to find ancestors / cousins etc.  We’ll see how it goes and if there is enough interest, we’ll carry on doing this.  Date: Thursday, Feb 10 at 2pm ET Zoom link to register:  https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_TO8OncZHSqCltjP5Lu0DSA Zoom will respond saying you are registered.

Bruce County Genealogical Society’s January 2021 Webinar 

You likely already know John Kaminski from his presentation earlier this year regarding tracing Eastern European roots.  He has given the AGEN20 (Adele’s Genealogy 2020) bug to his wife and has increased his researching knowledge by helping   Adele trace her French Canadian heritage.  Using at least 6 online sources, they have been able to trace Adele’s maternal lineage through documentation back to the early 1700’s, almost all exclusively born in Nouvelle France. 

John and Adele have not pursued much farther back than her 7th great grandparents, but know there are a few Acadian and French links, including Filles du Roi, convicted salt smugglers and military personalities

It has been a wild ride through Canadian history not taught in the classrooms!
