Genealogy with a Canadian Twist Returns for 2020




After the Canadian Genealogy Virtual Research Intensive in September, I went on hiatus. During that time, I travelled to England and Wales with my husband, Darryl. We journeyed to meet cousins, visited ancestral homes, took in the sights and enjoyed some delicious English treats such as Bakewell tarts, fish & chips, and crumpets. Also, I spent time working on my own family history, reading novels, catching up with friends and hanging out with my family. It was exactly what I needed.
I am refreshed, restored and ready for 2020!

I have missed our webinars and interacting with you. This is why I'm bringing back Genealogy with a Canadian Twist webinars, which will be held monthly.
There is a new format to the webinars. I will be having a panel of Canadian genealogists joining me. This is a great opportunity to meet genealogists from across the country, and for them to share their expertise and knowledge with all of us.


January 2020 Monthly Webinar
Topic: Genealogy Planning 2020
Get the most out of your genealogy in 2020. What are your plans, bucket list items and goals for your family history this year?
We have a full panel of Canadian genealogists joining us for this webinar: Christine Woodcock, Lianne Krüger, Linda Yip, and Kaye Prince Hollenberg.
We'll be discussing what methods and items we use to plan, what genealogy conferences and institutes are available, and other things we hope to accomplish this year to make it our best yet.

Linda Yip of Past Presence


Linda Yip loves sharing her genealogical finds - whether it’s research techniques, new tech, or family stories - on her blog, Past Presence. Linda is an active member of the British Columbia and Saskatchewan genealogy societies and is also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. She’s a storyteller and a member of the Saskatoon Storytelling Guild.

Linda has spoken on Using Evernote for Genealogy, Using Evernote with Henderson’s Directories, The Chinese Canadian Diaspora, and a range of business topics. On the client side, Linda’s biggest win was finding The Grandfather Who Didn’t Want To Be Found.

Linda’s dream weekend would be to be left alone at the national archives with a pot of fresh coffee and some snacks.
