English/Welsh Special Interest Group
October 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT
Topic: Our WW1 & WW2 Ancestors.
Look at your WW1 or 2 family members and choose one to highlight during our meeting. Many of the recent English fellows who had come to Canada went back to fight in WW1. Many did not return. By looking in early newspapers we can sometimes find interesting articles about the fallen soldier and his earlier years here.
The Calgary Herald is particularly good at this.
This Special Interest Group is for those researching in England or Wales.
Depending on the weather, meetings may be either by Zoom or hybrid from the AFHS Library.
We welcome visitors! If the meeting is being held at the library and you live in Calgary and area, please just come to the library and introduce yourself. If you would like to attend a Zoom session as a guest, please email email@example.com to receive the Zoom invitation.
