Meeting location: 715 Grand Blvd, Vancouver. The public is invited.
Jane McDowell is an amateur family historian who developed an interest in her forebears’ time as missionaries to China—which spanned 70 years, from 1864 to 1934. She took advantage of an opportunity to deeply research missionary history when she worked at Vanderbilt University and Emory University, both of which have divinity schools and extensive mission history collections.
In 2009, Jane joined three of her sisters and 15 of their first and second cousins for an 18-day trip to China, focusing on Shandong Province, where her great-grandparents and grandparents worked as evangelists, nurses, medical doctors, and teachers to the Chinese. Join her as she shares memories and photographs of this once-in-a-lifetime trip and the history of the Corbett and Heimburger families.
