Performance Notes

× Historical Family Research: Telling Your Own Story with Kristen den Hartog & Tracy Kasaboski Sisters/co-authors Tracy Kasaboski and Kristen den Hartog discuss their process in researching their family history for The Occupied Garden: A Family Memoir of War-Torn Holland and The Cowkeeper's Wish, a genealogical journey/social history that follows their working-class family from the slums of Victorian England to 1930s Canada. Sisters Kristen den Hartog and Tracy Kasaboski are the co-authors of The Cowkeeper's Wish: A Genealogical Journey, a social history that traces their working-class family's path from Victorian England to 1930s Canada. Nine years in the making, the book is their second collaboration, after The Occupied Garden, published in 2008, which tells the story of their father's family in the Netherlands in the Second World War. Both books explore the immigration experience, and weave intimate family history with the great events of the times. Tracy lives in Deep River, Ontario, where the sisters grew up, and Kristen lives in Toronto. Location: Seaway Manor B&B
