You have worked hard on your genealogy. You have made some fantastic discoveries. But what do you actually do with it? Those discoveries do not do much good just sitting in your file cabinet or on your computer. That's where 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks comes in.

Every week in 2020 we would like to post a VDFHS members ancestors story online.

We challenged members a few years ago and their stories can be found at here.

The parameters are simple:

  • Submit your story to verfamhist@shaw.ca as a word document.
  • Pictures can also be submitted but sent as a separate attachment, with caption (not embedded into the word document)

You may submit as many stories as you want throughout the year. A new story will be posted each week.

Not sure where to begin? Considering joining the VDFHS Writing Group. They meet at the Resource Centre the first and third Tuesday of the month from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. For questions please contact Sheila Copley at writing_vdfhs@vdfhs.com.
