Ottawa genealogy beginners session

Have you always been curious about your family history but never before had time to pursue it? Do you have a bunch of old family records, want to construct a family tree and explore your ancestors lives? Curious about how to use records of births, marriages and deaths and census information online to learn about your ancestry? There's wonderful help and genealogical resources you can find in the Ottawa area, much of it free.

Take your first steps in genealogy at a half-day beginner session to be hosted by the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa on 20 March 2010, at Library and Archive Canada Exhibition Hall A, 395 Wellington St in central Ottawa, 9:00am until noon.

Syllabus: The Seven Golden Rules of Beginning Genealogy, Census Records, Civil Registration, and Local Resources.

Speakers: John D. Reid, Glenn Wright, Alison Hare and Lesley Anderson.
Course sponsored by BIFHSGO & the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society.

If you would like to attend please print, fill-in and mail (to the address provided on the form) the registration form at www.bifhsgo.c/pdf/BEGINNING_GENEALOGY_webform_2010.pdf

A hint. Resources now available mean that if you began your family history research some years ago, and let it drop, you can benefit from these talks to learn about the new developments. The session makes a great refresher.
