Genealogy in the Park - November 7, 2015

I blogged about this way a couple times back in October, but now it's near enough to jump into your car and head on over to Edmonton ...

Here is an opportunity not to be missed!! Featured guest speaker is the one and only, world renown genealogist, author, and 'famous person' Dave OBEE. In 2012 he was awarded an honorary doctorate of laws by the University of Victoria for his work as a historian, genealogist and journalist. In 2014 he was presented with the Governor General's Caring Canadian award for his work as a community volunteer. Oh and he is NEVER boring. haha Dave has four exciting topics [Genealogy by Google; Beyond the Online Basics; Decoding the Dash; and The Geography of Genealogy in Europe.

The program runs from 9:30am until 3:30pm. They still have a few spots available. Tell them Pat sent you?!! haha Information at

GREAT program and awesome opportunity organized by by my dear friend and colleague Shannon Cherkowski. Trust me, if you can go you will LOVE it!!



  1. Hi Pat! Thank you for the publicity of our event! We had special prizes on hand and ready for anyone who would have said "Pat sent me". :-( we still have these prizes on hand. Good PR for a future event though...right? ;-)

  2. That's a great idea Shannon.

    I've heard WONDERFUL things about your first Genealogy in the Park!! Congratulations!!! Here's to many more.
