These courses will appeal to genealogists/family historians looking for education/knowledge that will take them beyond just their ancestors names, and birth, marriage, death dates/locations. The courses are all fun because Pat makes them that way!
Pat has been teaching and speaking at seminars for 15 years from Whitehorse to Scotland. She continues to write new courses and will be offering courses again in Fall 2014 through Arcola East Community Association Regina, and online!!

Ancestor's in western Canada 1916? FREE census search
As we all know the census is one of our most valued searches!! There were Special Censuses taken in Manitoba, Sask, and Alberta in 1906 and 1916. These have been available, indexed, on Ancestry for some time, but LAC has just now released a free searchable version (courtesy of Ancestry). One word of advice ... my grandparents were in Sask. in previous censuses but are absent in 1916 - both versions - so don't believe everything you find, or don't find!!
Still, it's hard to beat FREE?? Have a go at http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1916/Pages/1916.aspx
PS. I LOVE hearing from you all - good, bad, or ugly!!
