Researching HBC Ancestors


On Thursday, September 5th at 1:00 pm, eastern, I will be giving a presentation on researching ancestors that worked for the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) for Genealogy with a Canadian Twist. 

One of the results of men working for HBC was that they took what were known as "Country Wives" and married or coupled with Cree women. The children resulting from these relationships gave rise to the Métis and the presentation will include resources for researching Métis ancestors as well. 

Please join me! https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_chSvUK7PSgWa4bh7p60TFQ

The presentation is FREE  at the time of the live webinar.
