Speaker: Lynn Porter
Topic: Genealogy and One Place Studies
Lynne Porter’s genealogical research led her also to study the history and the stories of a community (a type of one place study). The study led to her first book about Oxenden and recently her second book about settlers at Big Bay – North Keppel published by The Brucedale Press. Lynne will share how she carried out the research and what she learned. She had decisions to make about what she would share and what was best left out of some lively stories she heard from folks she interviewed. Lynne and her husband, Ron, descend from local pioneers, which gave her fertile grounds to research.
