To celebrate our special 10th Annual Brick Wall Busters we will have DOOR PRIZES for a few lucky winners!
You probably have at least one unanswered genealogy question, an ancestor who's really difficult to trace, or a family with gaps in their timeline. At our November 26th meeting, we are offering the chance for six members to have Certified Genealogists try to help them smash through those brick walls. Of the questions that are submitted, three will be chosen from local members who are able to attend the meeting and 3 will be from members outside the Halifax Regional Municipality.
When submitting a query for the Brick Wall Buster event, you must state only one specific question to which you would like a response. Please include all pertinent available information such as the individual/family surname(s) and given name, approximate dates, area of Nova Scotia, the piece of information you would like to find, sources you have already checked, and your contact information. If we do not receive adequate information in order to properly assist you, the query may not be accepted.
The query should be kept short. At the event, the local members will read their queries for the benefit of other attendees. A member of the GANS Executive will read the queries from the members from “away”.
The deadline for receiving the queries is midnight October 26, 2019.
At the Brick Wall Buster on November 26th, our expert genealogists will provide names and locations of sources that might help provide the answer to each accepted query. The responses to the “away” queries will also be emailed/mailed to the member who submitted the query.
Queries and responses will be added to the website for the benefit of all after the lecture.
Please visit our Brick Wall Busters pages on our website [under the "Events" tab] to see the types of queries we have received in the past, and the responses.
Light refreshments will be served.
Bring a friend. Everyone is welcome.
