Introducing Penny Allen

This is an 'interview' on an article 'Where Are the Canadian 
Genealogists Hiding?' that Lorine McGinnis Schulze published on her blog.

I have many interests in genealogy, but most of the time I delve into emigration, land ownership and early settlers to Canada. Because of my work, I enjoy learning about maritime history, British - Royal Navy, Merchant Navy, Canadian - RCN, WRENs and anything similar. The prairies of Western Canada are also near and dear to my research. I am particularly interested in the First World War - especially the CEF Canadian Expeditionary Force and have found that Canadian War diaries are held at the National Archives. I have yet to pursue my Scandinavian roots and am keen to start uncovering that branch of the tree.

Here's a reference to lookups I will do for your research.

Lorine also interviewed a few other Canadian Genealogists listed below. Perhaps you would be surprised to discover a genealogist in your neighbourhood!

Fred Blair (War of 1812 Canadian Stories); Ruth Blair (The Passionate Genealogist);
Elise Cole (Librarians Helping Canadian Genealogists Climb Family Trees); Gail Dever (Genealogy à la Carte); Yvonne Demoskoff (Yvonne's Genealogy Blog); Allison Hare; Katherine Lake Hogan (Looking4Ancestors); Janet Iles (Janet the Researcher); Ken McKinlay (Family Tree Knots); 
Brenda Dougall Merriman; Janice Nickerson (Upper Canada Genealogy); Dave Obee; John D. Reid (Canada’s Anglo-Celtic Connections); M. Diane Rogers (Canada Genealogy, or, 'Jane's Your Aunt'); 
Lorine McGinnis Schulze (Olive Tree Genealogy website and blog); Diane Lynn Tibert (Roots to the Past); Christine Woodcock (Scottish Genealogy Tips & Tricks); Glenn Wright

I have also written articles for family history societies:
