Who do you think you are?
Learning about your ancestors, celebrating family traditions, embracing your culture, and understanding where you came from can open your eyes to how beautiful and unique you are. This group will appeal to fans of shows like ‘Long Lost Family’ and ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ Whether you’re an active ancestorian or have no idea where you would start, Veronica can guide you in researching your own family history.
It’s lovely... It was quite something going back... I think 'this is where I drew my first breath'... It makes me feel very humble.

Veronica will explain and show you how to research your ancestors using the internet. Each session you will search births, deaths and marriages records and explore census, parish, miltary documents and many other sources of information. If you get stuck, Veronica is on hand with ideas and helpful hints.
You will need your laptop or mobile device, your session zoom link, a pad and pen.
Each session Veronica will start with a presentation and throughout will encourage you to share what you have found. Much interesting discussion happens in this group as people share memories and observations from their own family history ventures.
