Evolutionary Approach to Genealogical Research - this Week's Webinar




This week's webinar features guest presenter and Canadian genealogist, Johanne Gervais.

In 2008, Johanne Gervais, BSc, MBA, left the corporate world to dedicate herself to genealogical research. Johanne has her own company, Gervais-Laekas Services, which includes Quebec Family Search , specializing in Québec genealogical research. She does contract research work for AncestryProGenealogists, Trace (previously called genealogists.com), LegacyTree Genealogists, and Gen-Find Research Associates, Inc. 
Johanne is the founder of the Québec Genealogical eSociety , a completely virtual, non-profit genealogical society launched in February 2018 to facilitate participation, learning, and research in Québec.

Johanne will be presenting "Evolutionary Approach to Genealogical Research."
The availability of and distance to a genealogical society are factors that hinder genealogists in their family research. Today’s digital world brings services to us via the internet, so why not provide genealogists, wherever they are located, access to services as they would have with a visit to a physical society?
