I spoke this weekend at “Unlocking the Past 2018” a genealogy conference put on by the Qualicum Beach Family History Society. My speaking partners were the renowned Thomas MacEntee, and Leslie Anderson from Ancestry Canada. What an honour to speak with them.
It was a weekend with lots of learning and connecting with other genealogists. The setting was relaxed and attendees enjoyed comparing notes with each other. A great moment was when someone asked me if we were related. After a quick exchange of details we discovered we have a common ancestor. How exciting is that! I also connected with a friend from my childhood, who attended the conference.
The organizing committee of the Qualicum Beach Family History Society was welcoming, helpful and, well, organized.
A shout out the Beach Club Resort in Parksville who hosted the event and drove Sally to the bus depot. The customer service there is amazing.
Now it’s time to go home and get some rest.
