Join us in welcoming Ken McKinlay for a presentation on "Genealogical Miracles." We will be taking a sometimes humorous look at some of the very interesting gaffs and errors that can be found in family trees such as "Resurrection", "The well preserved", and "Time travellers". At the same time we will cover how to prevent those pesky mistakes in our own trees.

Speaker Bio: Ken McKinlay's foray into his family tree research started with three simple family stories that he wanted to confirm or refute. He has now been researching his family tree for over 20 years and discoveries are still being made. He has given talks for several branches of the Ontario Ancestors, British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa, and the Ottawa Public Library. Ken's talks generally focus on methodologies and providing the skills needed to help solve those brick wall problems.

He has a genealogy related blog at Family Tree Knots ( where he shares the methodologies that he uses in his own research.
