Saturday, December 10
Copyright for Family History  (Before BIFHSGO Education Talk)
9:00 am to 9:30 am
The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
Marnie McCall’s talk will cover the basics of copyright, the meaning of “public domain,” copyright in your own work, using copyright material of others in your research or presentations, and copyright in family photos and letters.
 
About the speaker
Marnie McCall is a historian, newspaper reporter and lawyer by training and a life-long devotee of detective novels, which clearly fits her to be a genealogist! Her interest in genealogy began at a 1996 family reunion organized by two second cousins. She began seriously doing family research in 2006, when she joined BIFHSGO because that year’s conference theme was Scotland. Her Scottish grandfather was in WWI and she was going to go the Vimy Memorial rededication in April 2007 – she still has not found out where her grandfather fought! Her interest in copyright began in journalism school a very long time ago and she has tried to keep up with the constant changes ever since.

Great Moments in Genealogy  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 11:30 am
The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
 
Four BIFHSGO members share their great moment in genealogy.
 
Mary Ann Flannery — From Ireland You Say
By Duncan Monkhouse
This Great Moment will explore Duncan Monkhouse’s search for the ancestors of Mary Ann Flannery. The talk will start out with an explanation of how Mary Ann fits into Duncan’s family tree, where she lived and what her life was like. We will define the brick wall that initially inhibited locating any information about Mary Ann ancestors, how the wall was broken down, and what was located behind the wall.
 
About the speaker
Duncan Monkhouse recently retired as an Investigator, Electronic Evidence Officer, for the Canadian Federal Government and in his spare time investigates his family’s history. Duncan’s interest in the family history was piqued in 2008 when his wife started researching her family. Fortunately, Duncan’s mother had worked on researching the family genealogy and had completed a large portion of the tree. By expanding the branches sideways and with the coming online of vast genealogical databases, Duncan was able to break down many brickwalls discovering new relatives and interesting lives.
 
The Drowning of Charles Dougherty
By Susan Davis
While perusing church records, Charles Dougherty’s name showed up as a witness to the baptism of one of Philip Thompson’s children. Within a few short years, the men’s name would show up again, this time for their funerals. The records indicated they both drowned 6 July 1901. Further research led to an article in The Sherbrooke Examiner. It reported that four men drown while crossing the St Francis River after a hard day’s work of log driving. Charles was 50 and left behind a large family in East Angus, Quebec, including Susan’s great grandmother.
 
About the speaker
As an adolescent, Susan Davis volunteered at her local library. When returning books to their shelves, her two favourite sections were biographies and mysteries. Family history research provides her with lots of life stories to read and puzzles to solve. As the daughter of an army cook, Susan grew up loving her parents’ Eastern Townships of Quebec roots. Her dad still has her looking for the pirates in the family.
 
Extra! Extra! Read All about It! Cousin Lyman and Power of the Press
By Glenn Wright
We all recognize that newspapers are an essential source for family history, but very few of us can claim a newspaper editor in the family tree and the implications that this has for research. From the mid-1850s to 1934, Erastus Jackson (1829-1919) and his son Lyman (1856-1934) published and edited the Newmarket (Ontario) Era newspaper. Although some Wright family members lived in Newmarket for several years, the Jacksons, related through Erastus’s wife, Sophia Wright, frequently reported on the extended Wright family. Better still, detailed social news and notes, published in every edition over the course of several decades, solved long-standing research mysteries, proving again that newspapers can be an invaluable source of family information.
 
About the speaker
Glenn Wright is Past President of the Society and has spoken on many occasions at our monthly meetings and at our annual conference. He has published widely in family history and genealogical magazines and journals and while his primary interest is Canadian participation in the Great War, he is determined to complete a history of his Wright and allied families. Glenn is a firm believer in the value of newspapers as a resource to assist us with our family history and with the social context in which our ancestors lived.
 
The Tender Tale of a First World War British War Baby with Canadian Roots, Discovered Almost a Century Later
By Suzanne Eakin
A short film (8.5 min.) documents the poignant story of Dave Travis, radio presenter for BBC, Essex, who finally found his paternal roots. In 2013, considering topics relevant to the upcoming centenary of the First World War, he casually suggested to Sarah Ensor, archivist at the Essex Record Office, that she try to uncover the identity of his paternal grandfather. All he knew was that he had been a Canadian airman, lost in action, prior to his father's birth in January 1917. To his utter astonishment and delight, Sarah promptly found his grandfather, announcing his name to Dave on his show, live, on air: Kenneth Mathewson, of Montreal. Sarah then tracked down the Mathewson family in Canada. A 100% DNA match ensued, as well as two trips to Canada by Dave and his wife Caroline to meet the Mathewson clan who have eagerly embraced this grandson of their family's beloved son, lost in the First World War a century ago.
 
About the speaker
Suzanne Eakin (nee Mathewson) is a new member of BIFHSGO. A sixth generation Montrealer, she has a BA and Masters of Applied Science in clinical psychology from McGill. She worked in that field for over three decades, relocating to Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1990 but then retiring in late 2009 to Ottawa where two of her three children and all four of her grandchildren reside. Her late father, Kenneth Black Mathewson, conducted family research for over 30 years, with great enthusiasm and persistence (as the pre-computer era of such pursuits required). Sue shares her father's love of family history, but takes particular pleasure in assembling historic family portraits and photographs, to supplement the 'who begat whom.' She looks forward to sharing the story of her family's newly discovered cousin Dave — the living legacy of their family's loss in the First World War.

Lanes, Trains & Parliament Hill  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 11:30 am
The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
 
In the late 19th century, the Lane family was among the first to settle the community of Mission, BC which is located 80 km east of Vancouver on the north bank of the Fraser River. The Lanes loved to tell stories of these early times and had a great deal of pride in passing them down from one generation to the next. The family story that cemented Marianne Rasmus’s passion for family history research in the context of Canadian history is encapsulated in the story of Arthur Wellington Lane, who packed up his wife and three young children, left the familiarity of south-western Ontario, and headed west on the newly constructed CPR looking for new adventures and opportunities. It’s a story of perseverance and courage that has left a lasting legacy, and even includes a surprising discovery on Parliament Hill.
 
About the speaker
Marianne Rasmus is relatively new to Ottawa, and was thrilled to discover BIFHSGO after moving here in 2013. Born and raised in Vancouver, she spent most of her life in BC, experiencing life on Vancouver Island, in BC’s north and in the Fraser Valley. While her husband’s career moved them around the province, Marianne worked in a variety of professional environments, and volunteered with various organizations. After reluctantly taking Canadian History as a “filler” course in college, she discovered an interest and passion for history she never expected. That interest took on new meaning when she began her family history journey in 2008, and came to understand the hardships and contributions of the people in both her and her husband’s family trees. Marianne and her husband, Bill, have been married for almost 33 years and have two sons and two granddaughters.

The Queen’s Coachman — Our Only Claim to Fame  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 11:30 am
The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
Coming as she did from generations of agricultural labourers, Christine Jackson was happy to find that her Sussex-born great-grandmother’s brother provided her working class family with its only known claim to fame. For, so the story went, a certain Edwin Miller had been Queen Victoria's coachman! This nugget of information, backed up by some fading and undated photocopies of newspaper clippings, was all she had to begin illuminating the life of a man whose retirement was significant enough to be reported in newspapers around the world. Christine will relate how she used newspaper reports, census returns, parish and civil registrations, probate records, the royal archives and the Internet to piece together the story of a man whose life parallels the reign of Queen Victoria and proudly reflects the transportation business from a long-gone era.
 
About the speaker
Born and educated in the UK, Christine Jackson obtained a BA in geography from the University of London, where she developed a special interest in historical geography. She has made her home in Canada since 1968, and in Ottawa for over 40 years. She is a retired federal communications specialist (Elections Canada). A long-time family historian and active member of BIFHSGO since 2002, Christine has made presentations to BIFHSGO on her Sussex County family history and to other societies about the results of her three-year research project on the history of the Ottawa Valley’s Cowley family. She has contributed articles to BIFHSGO’s quarterly journal, Anglo-Celtic Roots,,and last year published a pamphlet in the Bytown Series of the Historical Society of Ottawa on her Cowley research.

Searching Find My Past's Newspaper Archives  (Before BIFHSGO Education Talk)
9:00 am to 9:30 am
The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
Newspapers can be a treasure trove of details about families and events that aren't often found in the usual birth, marriage, death, and census records.

Ken McKinley will provide some tips for searching these often overlooked resources in our genealogy and family history research.
 
About the speaker

From Famine to Prosperity to the Longue Pointe Asylum: the Varied Life of John Patrick Cuddy  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 11:30 am
The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
John Patrick Cuddy immigrated to Canada from Swinford, Ireland, during the Famine migration of 1847-1851. Once in Montreal he was able to create for himself a very successful business and a large family. Gillian Leitch's presentation will talk about Cuddy’s life in Swinford, his migration, the network of family and friends in Montreal, his business, his wife and children, and the last months of his life which were marked with an arrest, committal, court case, and the ensuing unusual judgement.  
 
About the speaker
Gillian Leitch’s PhD thesis about Montreal’s British population, “The Importance of Being English?: Identity and Social Organisation in British Montreal, 1800-1850,” was completed in 2007 at the Université de Montréal. After a year as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Edinburgh, she joined CDCI Research in Ottawa as a historical researcher. In addition to her work and publishing on Canadian history, she has also published three academic books on popular culture (science fiction: time travel and Doctor Who).

Mostly at Sea: Captain Harry Grattidge  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 11:30 am
The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
Gail Roger’s mild obsession with the Titanic led her to the discovery of the closest thing to a celebrity in her family tree: Harry Grattidge — sailor, survivor, and a Commodore of the Cunard Line. No, she hadn’t heard of him either. We will meet some of the Grattidge ancestors that Harry and Gail have in common, ponder the blessings and drawbacks of a highly unusual surname, and discover how Harry came to be a consultant on a classic film by surviving Britain’s worst maritime disaster (not the Titanic).
 
About the speaker
Gail Roger has been a BIFHSGO member for over a dozen years, and it took her the first seven years to pluck up the courage to make her first BIFHSGO presentation. This is her fifth. Gail’s family will tell you that her obsession with the Titanic is not as mild as she claims. They are mistaken. They also say that her obsession with family history borders on the frightening. They may have a point.
