As a genealogy teacher, researcher and speaker, every day I help others find their family history. It's a great feeling!

I'm experienced in Canadian genealogy and in the local history of the Greater Vancouver area and British Columbia. I love old photos, postcards and newspapers.

And I'm researching the families of Newdale, Manitoba, Canada where my Mum and my Na grew up.

And I have a One-Name study for my paternal grandmother's surname SAGGERS.

Look for news on my upcoming classes and talks at the Genealogical Speakers Guild or on my main blog, CanadaGenealogy, or, Jane's Your Aunt.
