Ontario Genealogical Society conference: Genealogy Without Borders

On Thursday I am flying to Ontario to participate in the Ontario Genealogical Society's Annual Conference (www.ogs.on.ca/conference2014/index.php) at Brock University in St. Catharines, as hosted by the Niagara Branch of the OGS, and I'm very much looking forward to it!

I will be giving a few talks at the event, including the Houston Memorial Lecture Genealogy Without Borders (Friday), The Godly Commonwealth: The Kirk's History and Finding Scottish Church Records (Saturday, being streamed live) and Scottish Marriage: Instantly Buckled for Life (Sunday), as well as participating in a social media panel session early on Saturday morning hosted by John Reid of Canada's Anglo-Celtic Connections blog (www.anglo-celtic-connections.blogspot.ca), which will be streamed live also. There are many other speakers, including several from Canada and the UK - for the full conference programme, visit www.ogs.on.ca/conference2014/OGS%20Conference%202014.pdf.

For the live-streamed webinars, please email register2014@ogs.on.ca

It should be a great event, and although I'll be busy I will try to keep up with news output whilst away, and bring a report on the proceedings after I get back.


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians. And for those wishing to take Scottish ancestral research a bit further, my next Pharos course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the Old Parish Records, commences May 14th 2014.
