Great value - now get it in person and online

Family history is a great value as a hobby. You get access to marvellous resources free for the asking through local archives, Family History Centres and public libraries. Online there are free resources, like familysearch.org, too numerous to list individually here. Many societies don't charge to attend regular monthly presentations, although you can wear out your welcome if you continue to freeload.

The things that aren't free, but organized by non-profit societies, are usually great value. Two are coming up in Ottawa.

I've already mentioned John Grenham's talks at Ottawa's Centrepointe on August 9. More information here.

Online registration just became available for BIFHSGO's annual conference, 18 - 20 September 2009, being held again this year at Library and Archives Canada. More information and registration here.
