AFHS library NOT OPEN TODAY
MessageTHE AFHS LIBRARY WILL NOT BE OPEN TODAY (Thursday January 11) because of cold weather. Although genealogists (and AFHS Library volunteers) are hot-blooded and will do almost anything for their research, cars don't like cold weather. As well, when the library gets cold, it takes a long time to warm up.So, avid researchers, do some research from home today. Have a look at the "Passenger List Indexing Project" that the Nanaimo Family History Society is doing. It is at: http://members.shaw.ca/nfhs/nanaimo.fhs/. They have completed indexing the Canadian passenger lists from microfilm from July 2, 1908 to October 13, 1910. Your family might not have immigrated at that time, but they might have gone on a trip or have had relatives visit them!Did you know that the Second Law of Sociogenetics says:"The law of heredity is that all undesirable traits come from the other parent."
