Next General Meeting
The next General Meeting is Thursday November 20, 2014 in Studio 2 at The Reach: doors open at 6:00 pm; business meeting at 6:30 pm; presentation by Andrea Lister at 7:00 pm. Visitors are welcome; however, there is a nominal $2.00 fee for non-members.
Andrea's presentation, The Lady in the Search, explains how women can be tricky to research. Mrs. Husband’s Name does not give you much to work with. Together we look at resources, some obvious, some less so, to find the documents that will help you learn more about the women in your families and the roles they played in their communities.
British Columbia based author, speaker, editor and book designer, Andrea Lister regularly writes about family history. She spent 10 years as the Communications Manager of a national software and services provider for independent securities and mutual fund dealers. Andrea often shaped bullet points and half-sentences into polished pieces for colleagues who would state “that’s what I meant to say” upon reading the finished product. She recently completed the book design and indexing for Looking Back: Volume One published by the Maple Ridge Historical Society.
