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.

I'm researching the families of Newdale, Manitoba, Canada where my Mum and my Na grew up as a One-Place Study.

And I have a One-Name study for my paternal grandmother's surname SAGGERS and am active in the LEWIS One-Name Study and a new Guild of One-Name Studies site - Women's Stories.

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. Talking genealogy there since 2005!

Activities right now are still mostly online!
