Dawn Kelly has been a radio newscaster for 36 years. For the past 23 she has worked as a national newscaster at The Canadian Press, winning national and international awards. Dawn embarked on a search for her Irish ancestors many years ago, only to discover she has deep French-Canadian and Acadian roots. She started spending her vacations visiting archives to find out more about her pioneer ancestors who settled in Nova Scotia and Quebec. Dawn is a direct descendant of 32 Filles à Marier and 50 Filles du Roi at last count and is fascinated by their stories.

Shari Read left behind a career in marketing and communications to spend more time tracking down her elusive ancestors.  She has made more PowerPoint presentions than she can count, on topics ranging from the Vikings to Viagra.  She has been a Toronto Branch member for several years and has served on the Education Committee for the last five.
