Join Me in Kelowna April 10th



On Sunday, April 10th, 2016, “When the wild flowers do spring and the wee birdies sing,” the Kelowna & District Genealogical Society is featuring a wonderful day of learning about Your Scottish Roots with renowned presenter:  Christine Woodcock from Ontario.  This is a unique opportunity to make real progress on your Scottish research! 


About Christine Woodcock, www.genealogytoursofscotland.ca:   
Having been born in Scotland, and having traveled back and forth for her entire life, it was beyond Christine’s ken to think that others who had roots in Scotland hadn't had the same experience. And so, Genealogy Tours of Scotland was born. Every year, Christine gets the honour of accompanying groups of genealogy researchers to Scotland where they can immerse themselves in their Scottish ancestry. When not traveling or planning, she lectures, writes, edits genealogy newsletters, engages with the Scottish North American community and is a self-proclaimed ambassador for both genealogy tourism and for Scotland.

·         In Search of Your Scottish Ancestors
