Our evening program for January 21, 2021 at 6:30 pm
January’s program explains how WikiTree can help you in your genealogical research. Starting with you, adding your direct family lines and connecting to existing ancestors’ profiles. WikiTree is a global family tree with one profile per person who ever lived. It is an incredible tree with an overwhelming amount of information and cross-referencing and database and DNA features and… Whatever your family lines are, we will cover how to connect your lines and connect to some of the features that make WikiTree what it is.
Guest speaker Mags Gaulden is a Professional Genealogist specializing in Genetic Genealogy as founder of Grandma’s Genes in Ottawa. Growing up in a family full of family historians, Mags was primed to become a Genealogist.
After earning her Bachelors Degree from Columbia College, she began to work her own Genealogy as a “hobby.” This 30-year “hobby” eventually led her to a Leader role with WikiTree, where she currently leads: The DNA Innovators Project, The United Empire Loyalist Project and the British Home Children Project. She also leads the Templeton and McElmoyle Name Studies and the McElmoyle DNA Project. Work with WikiTree led to Mags starting Grandma’s Genes in 2016.
