Lesley Anderson Joins the Genealogy Circuit

Friend and BIFHSGO colleague Lesley Anderson seems to be burning the candle at all three ends. Not only is she Partnership Development and Content Specialist for Ancestry.ca,  and instructor for a couple of genealogy courses through the Ottawa Catholic School Board, and Director of Education for BIFHSGO, and volunteer at the Ottawa Family History Centre; she's also taking on more speaking engagements outside Ottawa.

Next weekend Lesley is speaking at the OGS Region One Annual Meeting on Helpful Techniques for Using Ancestry.ca. There's full information on the meeting, which includes three other talks, at  www.lambton.ogs.on.ca/bulletinboard.html (scroll down).

On Saturday November 6 Lesley is presenting the opening plenary Women on Ancestry in  a full day session on The Women in OurPast: Strategies and Resources for Researching Female Ancestors organized by OGS Toronto Branch. Friend and colleague Glenn Wright is another speaker in a very strong line-up. More at: www.torontofamilyhistory.org/women.html

Looking further ahead, arrangements are still pending but another all-day OGS Toronto Branch session in early August is in the works, likely including Lesley, myself and Linda Reid. More to come.

Finally, in October 2011, Lesley is a speaker on a genealogy cruise which also has Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak (http://honoringourancestors.com/) and George Morgan (half of The Genealogy Guys) on the roster. That's pretty good, A-list, genealogy company. More at http://wwcruisehq.com/index_files/WorldwideCruiseHeadquarters_Family_History_Cruises.htm
