The London & Middlesex branch is pleased to invite you to join us on Saturday, December 7, 2024, at 10 am for our monthly hybrid event, with professional genealogist and speaker, Kathryn Lake Hogan, who will be joining us virtually. This presentation has been re-scheduled from February 3rd.

A bit about our Speaker:

Dive deep into the rich history of your Canadian family history with professional genealogist Kathryn Lake Hogan. She is the visionary and owner of her genealogy business, Looking4Ancestors.

Hailing from Windsor, Ontario, Kathryn’s lineage includes a mixture of Canadian, Loyalist and New England branches and roots connecting her to England and Wales. But her passion doesn’t stop at her own genealogy; Kathryn’s mission is to help others discover their Canadian ancestral connections.

Kathryn’s dynamic presentations, ranging from society meetings to genealogical research institutes in Canada and the United States, have earned her a reputation as one of the leading voices in Canadian genealogy. Whether you’ve attended one of her sessions or tuned into her “Genealogy with a Canadian Twist” webinars, you’ve likely felt the excitement of Kathryn’s dedication.

Kathryn’s commitment goes beyond her business. She believes in nurturing and growing the genealogy community. Having served in leadership roles for notable organizations such as Ontario Ancestors, the Association of Professional Genealogists,
and the United Empire Loyalists Association of Canada, she continues to champion greater accessibility, inclusivity, and diversity in family history.


The release of the 1931 Canada Census offers a unique opportunity to delve into the lives of our ancestors during the Great Depression. Explore the details of the 1931 census, the questions asked and some things you need to be aware of. Strategies and techniques for finding your Middlesex County ancestors will be discussed.

Although our speaker is joining us virtually, this is a hybrid meeting, so you may attend in person, or virtually – your choice. Registration is required for those planning to attend virtually. Attendance is free and open to all.
