I am extremely happy to announce that the slate of speakers, workshops and participants for the 6th Kitchener Public Library Genealogy Fair is now available on our fair webpage. The Fair will be held on Saturday 21 April 2018 at Central from 9am to 3pm. It’s a free event and no registration is required.
If you are thinking of taking the dip into the DNA pool to help breakthrough your genealogy brickwalls, this event is for you! This year, we are exploring genetic genealogy and the new opportunities that DNA testing offers.
And, if you are not into DNA testing, no worries! We have other workshops to help you in your genealogy journey – like British Home Children, writing your family history, land records research, finding 20th century Canadian ancestors and much more!
This year, we are also offering a family album scrapbooking workshop for your kids and grand-kids in the Grace Schmidt Room at noon (Children in Grades 4 and up). Bring in some favourite family photos and we’ll supply the mixed media materials. Why not pass along your love of genealogy to the next generation?
Are you ready to learn, share, grow and take your genealogy further? Then join us for the 6th KPL Genealogy Fair on 21 April 2018! Be sure to check the fair webpage often for updates. The schedule for the day will be posted in mid-April.
