Genealogy: Back To Basics

Starting in January 2015, Ottawa Branch OGS will present a genealogical education session prior to the monthly program. Genealogy: Back To Basics will include a short lecture on a genealogical topic, followed by a Question and Answer session with Ottawa Branch members. If you are new to family history research or need a refresher, come out and join us.

The first session will be Saturday 24 Jan 2015 at 10:30am in Room 115 of the City of Ottawa Central Archives. The presentation should last about 45 minutes and will be followed by a general Q&A session on genealogical topics until noon. Coffee and tea will be available throughout the morning.

There is no charge for the session and all are invited to return at 1:00pm for the monthly presentation with Elizabeth Kipp talking about One Name Studies.

Handouts for each session will be available at http://ogsottawa.on.ca/genealogy-back-to-basics/
