What the audience receives:
Lyn’s charmingly eclectic works-in-progress include her
case studies about the singing, dancing Swedish bachelor, the restless three
Greek immigrants and the heartwarming story of the Yorkshire matron who owned
one of Edmonton’s earliest nursing homes for polio victims. Other topics focus
on immigration, military, specialty archives and libraries, working with
databases, building evidence, forensic research, researching your country and
city ancestors and so many more. Spiked with personal anecdotes, Lyn
delivers an arsenal of tactics for sidestepping common mistakes.
Each presentation broadens the attendee's awareness to the vast amount of information available on the Internet, through libraries and archives and venturing off the paper trail. All sessions are specially prepared for the visual, auditory and tactual audience. The PowerPoint presentation is accompanied by a splendid display of how-to, specialty and historical books, plus artifacts from Lyn’s private collection to share with the genealogical enthusiast.
What you take home is a wealth of knowledge from an experienced library professional and researcher! Lyn's email—should you have any follow-up questions, plus an information package filled with new resources for your next research challenge. Laptops and tablets are welcome for note-taking. Bring your questions, your stories, your experience and share with others.
