BIFHSGO annual conference: 18-20 Sept 2009

The British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa conference is coming up, and, as usual, there are speakers I'm particularly looking forward to hearing.

Charlotte Gray is a British-born Canadian who will be giving the Friday evening Whiteside lecture on The women in Sir John A. Macdonald's life.

Duncan Macniven is the Registrar General for Scotland who will speak on Scotland's demographic history since Victorian times, and How to find your own Scottish ancestors.

Colleen Fitzpatrick, originally from New Orleans and now California, who I enjoyed at the recent NEGS conference and thoroughly recommend, will speak on Forensic genealogy, Mining databases, DNA and genealogy and a Case study (perhaps the Hand in the Snow which has an Irish connection.)
