Lesley Anderson has worked for Ancestry.ca for more than 10 years as their Canadian spokesperson and has done numerous presentations for genealogy societies and conferences across Canada on the endless research possibilities available on Ancestry.ca.
She has been involved in personal research of her family tree for over 45 years and her passion for genealogy has branched out to genetic genealogy, teaching classes, speaking at seminars and conferences, making TV and Radio appearances, consulting and doing research for others. Most recently she organized a group of 30 on a research and sightseeing trip to Ireland. For years she was well known for her computer and genealogy classes offered through the Ottawa Catholic Board Continuing Ed and her “field trips” to various archives and libraries.
She has served as Director of Education for BIFHSGO (British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa) for many years and volunteers at the Ottawa Stake – LDS Family History Center where she gets great enjoyment out of helping new and experienced genealogists with their research.
