Ontario Genealogical Society Conference 2012

OGS Conference 2012:  Borders & Bridges: 1812 - 2012, will be held 1-3 June 2012 at St. Lawrence College, 100 Portsmouth Avenue, Kingston, Ontario.

The War of 1812 was a border dispute between England and the United States. Issues such as borders; land settlement and pension records (on both sides of the border) of participants in the war of 1812 and other wars; immigration and migration; and genealogical resources in areas bordering eastern Ontario as well as in Ontario will be among the topics covered by speakers at the Conference. Other sessions will cover 21st century topics such as DNA, Google and other technology relevant to genealogical research.

Of particular interest to people curious about family history may be the pre-conference workshop “Starting Out in Genealogy”, offered Friday, June 1, 9:30 am – noon. People can register for this or any other Friday workshop without registering for the entire conference. 

Registration is now open at http://www.ogs.on.ca/conference2012/registration and the early bird rate ends on 31 March.
