Christine Woodcock is a genealogy educator with an expertise in the Scottish records. Christine is a lecturer, writer, author and blogger. She is the Director of Genealogy Tours of Scotland and takes groups of people to Edinburgh to research their family history on-site.

Meetings are held on the third Saturday of the month in the Wilson Room (second floor) of the Central Branch, Kingston Frontenac Public Library, 130 Johnson Street, Kingston, beginning at 10:00 a.m. The meetings end by noon, after which a number of those in attendance go for lunch together in order to continue genealogical discussions.
