Upcoming Family History Programs

 

Here is our spring 2018 Cloverdale Library Family History program line-up. Most programs appear on our site: https://surreylibraries.ca/events. Those that don’t appear should soon. In any case, registration is possible now for all of them. So please register! And tell your friends about them too.

 

(Later there may be additional programs added, so it is never a bad idea to check our events calendar.)

 

Of interest to many of you will be a City of Surrey Archives program on Feb 10 at Cloverdale Library starting at 11am:  The Miracle Mile. It is not a family history program, but is a program about the famous 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games held in Vancouver. Please note that registration is not done through the library. Check the link above to find more information. Others Archives programs will be held throughout the year in the meeting room at the library. So this is just the first of many.

Have you registered for the Conference yet? We are now over 100 registrants for this September event and some lectures are filling up but there is still room in everything except Blaine Bettinger’s consultations (don’t forget that Helen Smith is also doing consults and is a DNA expert as well); the Microsoft Word Computer Lab is full and there is only limited space in the two PowerPoint Labs. However, there is still lots of great selections available!

 

We are pleased to announce that Blaine Bettinger is now giving a Keynote Address at the Friday Evening Reception! He has an interesting and lively topic for us. Although this is a free event thanks to our hosts, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there are limitations on the attendance numbers due to fire codes. So, do make sure you register for this event before it is too late.

 

Once you are registered, you will be invited to join our special “Harvest Your Family Tree” Facebook page where you can meet the other registrants and keep up on the latest conference developments.  This is a closed group and it has been fun sharing information and learning more about the people who are coming from far and wide to the conference.  So far, we have attendees coming from Australia, Saskatchewan, Alberta and all points in BC.  I am really hoping to entice some Washingtonians up here this year, too!
