Ottawa Branch OGS: Genealogy Week

What are you doing from July 10th to 15th?  The Annual Genealogy Week, now in its third year, is just announced by Ottawa Branch of the OGS. It's a rare opportunity for those who realize that they need to dedicate some time to advancing their Canadian family history exploration, and would like to do so with expert assistance. Share your challenges, and successes.

The event this year is being coordinated by Mario Lapointe who says in a press release:

"Genealogy Week will be great for the seasoned researcher as well as those just starting on their journey of discovery. Ottawa and Gatineau have many archives and facilities to research your Canadian family. You will attend first-class lectures as well as receive unprecedented guidance from archival staff and local researchers.”

Wherever your ancestry is in Canada there are likely resources at Library and Archives Canada that will help in your search. For many this will also be a first opportunity to experience the new Ottawa City Archives, of special interest to those with Ottawa roots.

You may see one or more familiar names on the speaker list.
