The Sunshine Coast Museum & Archives is excited to welcome Teresa Eckford from the Sechelt Library for her presentation Introduction to Family History on Thursday, April 19 from 7:00-9:00pm. Join Teresa to learn how to start your family history research. The topics of the presentation include: where to begin your research, genealogical terminology, software, free and paid databases (including Ancestry Library Edition), and further resources. During this presentation, you will learn the preliminary skills needed to delve into the fascinating world of genealogical research! After the presentation, there will be a question and answer period where you can ask for tips, tricks or advice on your genealogical research. The Sunshine Coast Family History Society will also have a resource/reference table set-up for visitors to explore. This event is a collaboration between the Sunshine Coast Museum and the Sechelt Library, admission by donation. For more information, please call 604-886-8232
Our new feature exhibit Fixed explores the community conversation about creating a permanent, driveable link to the Sunshine Coast. Known today as a “fixed link”, the community has been talking about building a fixed link since the 1950s, around the same time that car ferries were introduced to the Sunshine Coast. Fixed explores the history of transportation on the Sunshine Coast, the introduction of the first car ferry and the conversation observed in local newspapers from the 1950s-present. The exhibit will also feature the latest feasibility study that highlights two possible connections: the Anvil Island bridge and the road to Squamish. Come down and get your fix of local history
On exhibit until July 1, 2018
