RVAS Presentation: A Guide to Fact Finding and Archival Exploration

Jennifer DeBruin

by Michael Whittaker

Tracing ancestry, investigating local history, or preparing a talk can present research challenges. Through more than 20 years’ experience, Jennifer DeBruin has acquired the skills and knowledge to guide people into the daunting paths of research.

Ms. DeBruin addresses the Rideau Valley Archaeological Society Sunday February 14, 1:30 pm on the RVAS Microsoft Team meeting. She is conversant with North American history, genealogy, research methods, and the importance of historical context and perspective.
Her ancestral roots in New France/Quebec, Upper Canada/Eastern Ontario, and Colonial America, allied with her commitment to education, led her to write fact based historical fiction, contribute historical articles to periodicals, and deliver dynamic presentations.
Her unbound curiosity powers her engaging talks on the intriguing world of Loyalist spies, slavery on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River, Loyalist migration from New York to Upper Canada, and women hidden in the shadows of colonial history.

In her current novel for young readers, she shares her ancestral connection to the French English colonial conflict in North America, and Loyalists in the American Revolution.
