Laurie Giffin Member of the Week: Laurie Giffin leads the Atlantic Canada Team and volunteers her language skills on le Portail Francophone and bilingual categorization. Here's why she loves our single family tree: "We all save a lot of time and effort when we build on each other's research. I have met so many wonderful people, and have learned so much more about my ancestors than I could ever have achieved alone."
