Researching Your Genealogy

Researching Your Genealogy – Marilyn Cottrell

March 24 2018 at 1:30 pm, Stittsville Legion

Are you interested in your family history? Have started searching family records? Do you know all the resources available?

This month’s speaker Marilyn Cottrell will enlighten us on researching your genealogy. She will be concentrating on sources for researching Goulbourn genealogy, but as all researchers know, sources are often difficult to find, as is information, leading to “brick walls”. Often new ideas for finding missing information come from unexpected sources – all that to say this topic will be of interest to anyone researching family history.  Audience participation (and input) is welcome.

Marilyn Cottrell is descendant of one of Goulbourn’s original settlers (William Lackey) as well as many other Goulbourn settlers. She is an very active researcher and long-time member of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society.

Please join Marilyn at the Stittsville Legion at 1:30pm, Saturday March 24 2018.  As usual, parking and refreshments are free. We invite you to “tell a neighbour, bring a friend”.
