Barbara and Duncan will discuss how to create a PowerPoint presentation that will thrill, enthrall, and entertain your audience. They will detail the key elements of a good story, a good presentation and how to use the features of PowerPoint. The session will consist of a presentation, the live creation of a PowerPoint presentation, a break for practice and then a Question and Answer period.
Duncan Monkhouse is the son of two British nationals who came to Canada at different times, as a result of the Second World War. Born in Toronto, and moving to Ottawa at an early age, Duncan did all his schooling in Ottawa, and spend his working career here, first in private industry and then in the Federal Government. Duncan’s interest in the family history was piqued in 2008 when his wife started researching her family and a colleague went to Shanghai, where Duncan’s maternal family had spent some time. Duncan, a member since 2008, is the current president of BIFHSGO.
Barbara Tose started researching her family’s history on her first trip to Britain in 1982. She has found generations of British mariners, their families, and farming families on both sides of the Atlantic. Over the years she has given several presentations for various groups, most notably “He Wore His Buttons Well,” about her grand-uncle Captain Harry Tose, and “Travels with My Aunt: Adventures in Europe 1914,” based on a letter from her great-grand-aunt Nellie Miller. Barbara is the current editor of BIFHSGO’s Anglo Celtic Roots, past-president of the society and hosts the BIFHSGO Socials on Zoom.
