Ottawa Branch to host Ontario Genealogical Society Conference 2017

The Ontario Genealogical Society’s annual Conference provides for members and the public to learn and share information about the hobby.  There are tours and workshops, lectures and Marketplace, awards, a Research Room, the annual Banquet, displays and special events.

Ottawa Branch has hosted five times, in 1972, 1977, 1988, 2000 and 2007. The 150th birthday of Canada is 2017 and Ottawa Branch will again host the OGS Conference. A small committee has started to plan the event but we can always use help. Meetings are held on-line, so you can participate from anywhere in the world. If you would like to join one of the sub-committees, particularly if you have expertise in Marketing or Social Media, please contact Mike More at conference2017@ogs.on.ca.

If you belong to another heritage or genealogical organization in Eastern Ontario, we would be pleased to have you participate with us. For more details, contact Mike at conference2017@ogs.on.ca.
