Bracebridge Library is helping residents find family connections with soldiers of World War I.
In recognition of Remembrance Day, the library will be holding a Genealogy event next Monday. Librarian Sarah MacNeal says her colleague Ruth Holtz will lead the workshop.
“So she’ll be leading people through searching military history of their ancestors,” says MacNeal. “Either on Ancestory.com or also through Library and Archives Canada.”
She says LAC has digitized a huge list of World War I records, allowing Canadians to track their family trees to these soldiers.
MacNeal says the workshop is totally free for residents, but space is limited.
You’ll need to call ahead to book a spot for the Monday workshop. It starts at 10:00am at the library. You can find more details on this workshop and other events at the Bracebridge Library here.
