The work of the Society to create this publication was extensive, with travel for interviews and story collection, research, as well as the writing and layout. Printing and binding costs have also increased significantly, resulting in a final price tag for the book that reflects all of these factors.

A book launch will be held when we have received our printed copies. (Check back here for date and place). Locally copies will be available at:

Beginner’s Guide to Genealogy

We were recently contacted by the young author of a new online guide for those wanted to get started in researching their family tree. Rachel, an American contributor from Hobby Help, alerted us to her Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Genealogy, and we’re delighted to add it to our Genealogy Research Links page.

Rachel shared with us that she “got the bug a few years ago and along with the excitement itself of finding new relatives one of her missions is to give back and spread the word to beginners”. She is based in New York, and although she hasn’t yet found any Canadian connections in her family history, she keeps searching!

 

A High Five to a Young Researcher

A young boy in the US has been doing his own genealogy research, and we received this nice note from his mother. We have indeed added the suggested resource in question to our Genealogy Research Links page. Thanks Garrett!

Just wanted to let you know that your genealogy page (https://lanarkgenealogy.com/research-tools/genealogy-research-links/) has been helpful. My son (8 years old, 3rd grade) is working on a family tree project for his Social Studies class. (I loved doing this project as a kid!)

I’ve been helping him do some research, and just wanted to let you know this guide from Maryville University was a big help to us, too: http://online.maryville.edu/online-masters-software-development/developing-your-family-tree-with-genealogy-software/

I thought you might want to include it on your page? My son, Garrett, found it. If you add it, let me know! I’d love to show him!
