Canada's National Treasure 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Learn as Lyn virtually navigates through this website, tantalizing you to an endless variety of federal Canadian resources: censuses, land records, immigration and naturalization information, military records, photographs, along with a greater wealth of knowledge that will benefit genealogists in their heritage quest

Before and Beyond the Internet 1:30 pm to 2:45 pm
Lyn integrates archaic library science with the Internet. In a snapshot, learn why genealogists cannot afford to sidestep “finger walking” through original archival material, reading scope notes, researching libraries and archives, and requesting interlibrary loans

Research Plans that Work! 2:45 pm - 4:00 pm
Experienced helmsmen know that no river flows straight, but drifts with a tidal motion twisting and turning. Only with careful planning, reading maps and scouting ahead, can boatmen travel safely and keep navigation on course. It’s the same with family history. Applying energy in preliminary research; course-plotting and charting are certain defenses for successful genealogy. If there’s no strategy or intended course, frustration can easily offset any plans for resolution. Join Lyn, and learn how to keep focused, critically thinking through purposes and procedures before we carry out our research.
