Halton-Peel Branch Meeting, Digging Up Stories

October 27, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm America/Toronto Timezone
Oakville Public Library
120 Navy Street Oakville
Halton-Peel Branch

Kristen den Hartog will explore the resources she and her sister/
co-author Tracy Kasaboski used to create The Cowkeeper’s Wish:
A Genealogical Journey, which follows their working-class family’s
path from the slums of Victorian London to 1930s Canada. She’ll
give specific examples of where they found ancestors “wandering
insane,” charged with crimes, dying in workhouses, and fighting in
the First World War. She’ll also discuss the family archive and talk
about how personal resources were useful for building both The
Cowkeeper’s Wish and the sisters’ first collaboration, The Occupied
Garden, which chronicles the lives of their father’s family in the
Netherlands in WWII.
Speaker: Kristen den Hartog, author
