April 2019 Meeting

Bob Dawes

On Monday, April 8th at 7:30 pm, the Leeds & Grenville Branch of Ontario Ancestors (The Ontario Genealogical Society) will learn about The Family History Reno Project (the easy do-over) from speaker Bob Dawes.

If you’ve ever wanted to clean up your family history file, this is the easy way to approach it. Normally, a Do Over involves re-entering all of your family information from scratch while this approach allows you to continue using your file for research while cleaning it up. It also allows you to take advantage of everything you’ve learned over the years as well as new resources and tools.

Bob Dawes is a past chair of Quinte Branch and currently responsible for their database and computer maintenance. Bob and his wife, Barbara, have traveled extensively throughout North America and the United Kingdom in search of their ancestors and enjoy using technology to enhance their research.

March 2019 Meeting – Evaluating Evidence

Mike MoreOn Monday, March 11th at 7:30 pm the Leeds & Grenville Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society will learn about Evaluating Evidence with a presentation by Mike More. Guidelines and some examples will help in “Determining the significance of the information we’ve found.” There is plenty of information available to genealogists but we need to examine it and determine if it is useful and correct.

Mike More retired from the Canadian Forces in 2004 after 32 years service. He volunteers with the Ottawa Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society where he currently co-chairs their Program Committee, and is the Provincial Coordinator for The Society’s Indexing project, The Ontario Name Index (TONI). Mike has been tracing his roots for thirty years, using computers and the Internet to help with his research for much of that time.
