Serving as chief genealogist for the venerable New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), David’s seminar topics include 1) World War 1 Military 2) Great Migration Era settler research 3) Probate & Deed Records research. As an honored guest at our Hudson Bay Company Gala Reception Friday evening, he will be able to share his genealogical gems; seemingly small finds that lead to amazing stories. We are collaborating with Friends of Fort Vancouver to bring some of the wonderful Fort interpreters as guests.
