Bio of Julia Mathews McIntyre
 
Julia Mathews McIntyre has been an avid genealogist for over 30 years. She has a degree in Electrical Engineering and was involved in Design Engineering Management during her professional life. After retirement she found that her analytical background was an asset in conducting genealogical research and analysis.  
 
She has maternal ancestors from German-speaking countries who emigrated in the mid to late 1800s, and paternal ancestors primarily from Ireland and England, many of whom came to the US before 1700. She comes from a large clan with historically large families, offering unlimited opportunities for research.  
 
DNA is a special interest. This field is growing exponentially and offers the ability to accomplish genealogical research that could not be successfully completed by any other means. Learning how to analyze DNA test results will soon be an essential skill for all genealogists, just as using a computer for research has become an essential skill today.
 
There will be no Society business meeting on this date.)

Canadian Research (Part I)
Wednesday, February 28
Canadian Research (Part I)  (EGSF GENL MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS)
1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Elsie Quirk Library Second Floor Large Meeting Room

Presenter:  Bryan L. Mulcahy (Genealogy Reference Librarian for Fort Myers Public Library)

Topic:   Canadian Research (Part I)

Canada is often under-researched when it comes to genealogy.  There are many more people that entered the U.S. through Canada than what appears in most records simply because prior to 1895, nobody was keeping track of it.  Join us for Part I of this series on Canadian Research.

Bio:  Bryan L. Mulcahy has been the Reference Librarian for the Lee County Library System since 1990.  His duties include providing reference and directional assistance, with special emphasis on patron genealogical research.  He gives speeches to local genealogy and business groups, and in the past, has conducted monthly radio and television talks on genealogy, and provided film presentations at local nursing homes and senior citizen centers in Moultrie County, Georgia.  Bryan holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and a Masters in Library/Information Science, both from Florida State University.
