Conference 2018 – earlybird alert

Our parent organization, the Ontario Genealogical Society, is holding its annual conference at the University of Guelph this year — from Friday June 1 to Sunday June 3, with a range of local tours being offered on Thursday May 31.

With the theme Upper Canada to Ontario: The Birth of a Nation, Conference 2018 promises 27 speakers, 12 Friday workshops, and 35 weekend lectures, as well as opening and closing plenary sessions, a Saturday banquet, and a bustling Marketplace with additional “Fast Trax” presentations.

Register before February 28 to take advantage of early-bird rates. OGS members are eligible for additional discounts and, if you are enrolled in our Genealogy Summer Camp, taking place the following week in Toronto (June 4 – 8), you’ll get a further break on your Conference package.
