As a community we value the facilities provided for genealogy by the LDS year-round. Next Saturday the good folks at the Ottawa Ontario Stake Family History Centre are going the extra mile with Discovering Our Ancestors, a great opportunity to learn more and upgrade our skills.
There are three parallel sessions and a total of nine presentations, plus displays from several local organizations.
Full information for this free event is here.
The speakers, in three time slots, are: Richard Lelièvre, Barbara Berry, and Olivier Bilodeau; Lesley Anderson & Glenn Wright, Kyla Ubbink and Olivier Bilodeau (again); and Hariette Fried, John D. Reid and Diana Hall.
I'm having a hard time deciding between hearing Lesley & Glenn or Kyla, who's restoring a book for me. In the final time slot Hariette and Diana are both knowledgeable speakers either of whom I'm reluctant to miss. I'm offering an extra incentive to come hear me instead on Making the Most of Newspaper Archives, some free gifts!
That's this Saturday, 2 May 2009, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm at 1017 Prince of Wales Drive, Ottawa, Ontario.
