See you at OGS Conference?

Time flies! The annual Conference of our parent organization, the Ontario Genealogical Society, is now just days away!

Conference 2014 is being hosted by the Niagara Peninsula Branch of OGS, and is taking place at Brock University in St. Catharines from May 1 to 4. This year’s theme is “Genealogy Without Borders” — in recognition of the way the Internet and social media are making it easier for family history researchers to connect to resources and relatives throughout the world. The Niagara Region is well known, not only for its wineries and Falls, but also for its historical significance in the War of 1812, the Welland Canal and the Underground Railroad. Several local tours will be available.

Attendees can register for individual days or the full weekend, and can choose from a range of pre-event workshops as well as numerous concurrent weekend sessions, some of which will be live-streamed for the first time. The Conference 2014 instructor roster includes family history experts from across Ontario, as well as from British Columbia, the United States, England and Scotland  — and, we’re pleased to report, an impressive number of them have connections to Toronto Branch. As usual, there will also be a spacious Marketplace at the Conference, with displays by the OGS and its branches, genealogical and historical organizations, and commercial vendors.

We’re looking forward to Conference 2014… will you be there too? If so, please stop by the Toronto Branch table and say hello!
