Names, dates and places are the skeleton outline of your ancestors’ lives but what we really want to know is, “Who were these people?” This workshop will survey many different sources that may hold biographical information, helping you to understand the lives and personalities of your ancestors.
Family History Forums are a partnership presentation series of the Kelowna & District Genealogical Society and the Okanagan Regional Library. The topics vary but are typically at the beginner’s level in Family History research. All are welcome to these FREE Zoom presentations.
