The events were absolutely jam packed with attendees, and a huge lot of fun. Major thanks to Donna Fraser, who first suggested the event at a chance encounter in the Mitchell Library in Glasgow some two years ago, but also to Lorraine Butler, Lola Cook, and the rest of the team who put on such an amazing programme, attracting folk from various quarters in BC! Here are some pics from the events:
A great two days with a lot of fun!
Most of my Unlock the Past books also sold out at the conference, but if you attended and were unable to purchase copies, you can find them for sale in Canada at Global Genealogy - my dedicated author's page on that site is available at http://www.globalgenealogy.com/authors/paton-chris/chris-paton.htm.
With thanks to Qualicum Beach FHS (www.qbfhs.ca), and especially to Donna, a true genie hero for all that she has done for the society locally. Now onwards and upwards for the second half of the trip!
And finally, thanks to Pattie Watson and Pat Hocker for great craic last night, sharing an impressive whisky collection in Duncan, BC...!
