These two blog articles explain my background and a very basic look up service in archives in the UK.

**If you are a family history society in the UK, I would be happy to speak to your group about Canadian genealogy resources.

  1. Thanks Pennyfor including me, and my humble little blog https://patryangenealogy.blogspot.ca/ in your Saskatchewan section. I have added 'your' blog to my student hand-outs as you've done a great job of listing & explaining Canadian resources. Always nice to meet a friend from the UK. BTW my Father was born in Scotland. Cheers and Thanks for all you do.

    1. Hello Pat - it's so nice to hear from a fellow genealogist! I enjoy your posts, you provide such sensible suggestions to follow in research. Thank you for your kind comments. Keep in touch. Penny
