With the pandemic we have had to contend with many restrictions when it comes to visiting our favourite archives and museums. Fortunately we still have a vast array of resources available to us online with more coming out every week. In this presentation Ken will touch upon the various online resources and tools that permit us to continue researching the various branches of our family trees, all without leaving the comfort and safety of our homes.

Ken McKinlay’s foray into his family tree research started with three simple family stories that he wanted to confirm or refute. He has now been researching his family tree for over 18 years. He has given talks for several branches of the Ontario Ancestors, British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa, and the Ottawa Public Library. His talks generally focus on methodologies and providing the skills needed to help solve those brick wall problems.
