The following is an announcement from the Ontario Genealogical Society.
The Board of the Ontario Genealogical Society is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Newitt as Assistant Executive Director. She will become Executive Director next April, on the retirement of the current Executive Director, Dr Fraser Dunford.
Sarah, age 28, has been the Society’s librarian for the past year. She holds a BA in German from Queen’s and a MLIS from McGill. She has worked in a number of libraries in Ontario and in Montreal. She has had a life-long association with Girl Guides. A native of Mount Albert, Ontario, she has lived in Japan, India, and Germany.
She inherited family history projects from her Father’s Father and her Mother’s Mother (a project that requires fluency in German). One of her ambitions is to prove a suspected UEL link.
