Fawne Stratford-Devai
Biography & Links to Published Work

Fawne Stratford-Devai is one of the panel of three genealogical sleuths who work together to unravel family mysteries on the popular History Television series ANCESTORS IN THE ATTIC.

Fawne's passion for archival research began in 1987 as a university student she became caught up in trying to understand the internment of German Canadian citizens during World War II. Her love of history easily transferred to a curiosity about her own family history and before long she was hooked on discovering her English and Irish roots.

Fawne's work on land records and early Ontario records is well known. A published author on such books as The Men of Upper Canada and The District Marriage Records of Upper Canada/Canada West, she has also published a number of helpful research guides through Global Heritage Press and contributed articles to the online family history newsletter "The Global Gazette."

Fawne's dedication to the access and preservation of our heritage records has been clearly demonstrated with her role in preserving Ontario's land registry office records. Together with Ruth and Howard Burkholder, Fawne and her husband Andrew traveled the province to rally hundreds of volunteers in the cause to identify and find homes for Ontario's important land registry office records.

A graduate of sociology at McMaster University, Fawne spent many years in health policy and epidemiological research at McMaster before joining the Ontario government.

Fawne's lectures on genealogical and historical topics, particularly Ontario records, are always entertaining and educational.
