Sunday, October 27, 2019: Kristen speaks at the Halton Peel branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, exploring the resources she and Tracy used to create The Cowkeeper’s Wish: A Genealogical Journey. She’ll give specific examples of where they found ancestors “wandering insane,” charged with crimes, dying in workhouses, and fighting in the First World War. She’ll also discuss the family archive, and talk about how personal resources were useful for building both The Cowkeeper’s Wish and the sisters’ first collaboration, The Occupied Garden, which chronicles the lives of their father’s family in the Netherlands in WW2. The meeting is free and open to the public. 2 – 4 pm. at the Oakville Public Library, 120 Navy Street, Oakville.
Tuesday, April 28, 2020: Kristen speaks at the Wellington County Branch of Ontario Ancestors (The Ontario Genealogical Society). Details to follow.
