Discover if your family members were Black Sheep or Bigwigs

The Lake Country Museum & Archives is partnering with The Kelowna & District Genealogical Society to present a genealogy workshop next week.

Black Sheep or Bigwigs?

Whichever it is, we all want to know our family history and this is the start you just might need to discover what the past has to tell you.

This two-part workshop begins with a two-hour introductory session presented by the Kelowna & District Genealogical Society to learn basic research methods and the tools available to help your search.
