New Family History Resource - Elgin County Backus Page House Museum Family History Club

In January Elgin County will have another resource for searching your roots. A monthly Family History Club will begin at the Backus-Page House Museum.  

Resources will include open forums, access to the resource library and discussions about everyone's current research and to act as a support for each other.  We will also book workshops or field trips based on the interests of those who attend.

Attendance is free with a Tyrconnell Heritage Society membership.

If you have ideas for topics or would like to be a speaker (15 minutes - 1 hour) or run a workshop (half day to full day) please don't hesitate to contact me Angela Bobier.

The museum has a Website and Blog with contact details
