On Thursday, June 1, Dianne Brydon gave an interesting presentation of the challenges she and her father met and overcame while researching the family history book, The Stalwart Brydons: From Scotland to Galt to Portage la Prairie, A Family History of 100 Years in Canada. She described the difficulties in proving family relationships and how resources, such as Census, annual assessment records and church documents can connect family members to one another and prove - as well as dis-prove - previous assumptions. Dianne was also very pleased to meet many of her extended family members in Neepawa – several of whom came out to enjoy her presentation. The presentation took place at the Neepawa Public Library
