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!
