NGS takes Canada for granted


Take a look at the logo for the (US) National Genealogical Society conference coming up later this year. I'm wondering why Canada's Maple Leaf flag is missing? There is at least one Canadian presenter on the program, and I suspect there will be more non-US registrants from Canada than any other country. If the omission is not an example of taking Canada for granted it could only be a deliberate insult.

I too find it difficult to believe that the Canadian flag is omitted - if only from the fact that many Americans like me have Loyalist ancestors and other connections to Canada.

Probably has little to do with attendance and more to do with the International Workshops that are being held involving Eastern Europe, Italy, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Hispanic countries.
