In Memoriam: Kathleen Barclay Bowley

We are saddened to learn of the passing of OGS author, Kathleen Barclay Bowley, who passed away on Tuesday November 16th, 2010.  Kathleen was an honourary life member of OGS and a former chair of OGS Kawartha Branch.

After an enthusiastic response to a talk on “Genetics and Genealogy”, it was Kathleen who worked with genetics experts Elizabeth Curtis and Luanne McNabb to turn their talk into the book Family Health Trees: Genetics and Genealogy. The book was originally published in 1995 and a second edition was published in 2004 to reflect new discoveries in the area of genetics and health.

Kathleen’s dedication to genealogy and the importance of knowing one’s family health tree will be sorely missed.
