FUN IDEAS FOR SHOWCASING YOUR DISCOVERIES

Speaker: Janice Nickerson

Most genealogists spend years, even decades, researching their family’s history and then despair of ever writing “the book” that will showcase all their discoveries for their family. This lecture demonstrates, with show-and-tell examples, a handful of creative ways to give your family the gift of genealogy without the slog of writing a 500-page tome.

Janice Nickerson, MA, a professional genealogist, specializes in early Ontario research (the Upper Canada period — 1791 to 1841, a difficult period and location), including fur trade history and criminal justice records, and turning bare-bones genealogies into full-fledged family histories. Janice is a popular speaker and has given presentations at many OGS conferences over the years. She has authored four books and numerous articles.
