What's That App, Eh? Episode 18 Genealogy with a Canadian Twist

This week on Genealogy with a Canadian Twist I have invited three of my colleagues to be panelists on the webinar. 

Christine Woodcock

Christine enjoys helping others to preserve and share their family photos, documents and videos in ways that are tangible and easily shareable. 
Follow Christine on Twitter and visit her website Genealogy Tours of Scotland.


Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional based in the United States who is also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. 
Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. Currently Thomas shares many of his articles and videos for free at Abundant Genealogy and also runs the popular Genealogy Bargains and DNA Bargains websites!
Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.

Historical Photo credit: Library and Archives Canada

Nearly 28,000 members of Canada's Army, Navy, and Air Force who have served in the First World War, the Second World War or the Korean Conflict went missing or have no known grave.

Mags Gaulden is a member of the Canadian Casualty Identification Team whose job it is to attempt to identify newly discovered human remains of military personnel who went missing during active service.

She is a Professional Genealogist specializing in Genetic Genealogy as founder of Grandma’s Genes in Ottawa. Growing up in a family full of family historians, Mags was primed to become a Genealogist. After earning her Bachelors Degree from Columbia College, she began to work her own Genealogy as a “hobby”. This 30 year “hobby” eventually lead her to a Leader role with WikiTree, where she currently leads: the the DNA Project, the United Empire Loyalist Project, and the British Home Children Project. She also leads the Templeton and McElmoyle Name Studies and the McElmoyle DNA Project. Work with WikiTree led to Mags starting Grandma’s Genes in 2016. Mags is a Genetic Genealogy Lecturer, Blogger and a Social Media Maven. She serves as Admin for Facebook groups including the ISOGG FaceBook Group. 

Mags will by my guest this week on the webinar. Don't miss out on what is surely going to be a fascinating and heart-warming interview.
