If you’d like to learn more about researching Canadian soldiers of the First World War and if you live in the Greater Victoria area you may be interested in two seminars I’m presenting at the Saanich Centennial Branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library this November. Both seminars are presented in conjunction with the Saanich Archives.
At 2pm on Wednesday November 2nd I’ll present a 90-minute overview on how you can use a variety of online resources to gain insights into your soldier’s experience. At 10:30am on Wednesday November 23rd I’ll lead a hands-on two-hour workshop where you’ll use a variety of resources and techniques to research soldiers from the Saanich Honour Roll, as featured in the Saanich Remembers WW1 project. These are skills you can later apply to your own research. Both seminars are free however seating for the workshop is very limited and so pre-registration for the November 23rd event is required. For more information please check out the Saanich Library event calendar.
I look forward to seeing you there!
