Title: Column: Spotlighting Three Canadian Genealogists
Snippet: In my last column, I wrote about how a large number of genealogy speakers, authors and bloggers go unnoticed within Canada and beyond our borders. These genealogists, who help many people research their family trees and provide information and tips on how to uncover the facts, work hard at what they do. In an attempt to help spread the news about these knowledgeable individuals, I’ve decided to shine a spotlight on a few of them here.
The Family Tree Knots blog is written by genealogy researcher and speaker Ken McKinlay. He’s been researching his family tree through trial and error for more than fifteen years. His ancestors came from Canada, United States, England, Scotland and Ireland.
His July 18th post “New Brunswick Research Sites” provides an in-depth look at genealogy websites for New Brunswick. McKinlay has traced many branches of his family tree to this province. His May 18th post “Searching the Files of Rejected CEF Volunteers” discusses the volunteers who were found unfit to serve in the Canadian military during the First World War.
