Genealogy research opportunity in Ottawa


19-24 Jul 2009

With a little help, the right resources and dedication of your time, you can make great strides in your family history research. I saw that happening a few years ago in Ottawa at Library and Archives Canada; a group shared professional expert guidance, and the joys of making breakthroughs in their family history.

If the resources you need are in the Ottawa area, and you like the idea of sharing the experience, then consider registering for Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society's and la Société de généalogie de l'Outaouais' offering Semaine de généalogie/Genealogy Week. It's modeled after the Toronto Branch OGS' successful Genealogy Summer Camp. This program brings out-of-town genealogists to Ottawa and Gatineau for a week of tutorials and hands-on research at the many archives and repositories in the area. The group is kept small to allow lots of help from local members.

Don't hesitate too long. The deadline for applications is 30 April. There's more information here.
