BIFHSGO March Meeting: Social Networking and Genealogy

Marian Press, a Toronto-based librarian and genealogist whose new book Education and Ontario Family History was reviewed here recently, is the guest speaker at BIFHSGO March meeting, Saturday 12 March at 10 am.

Marian will speak on modern social networking sites. Are they more useful than their predecessors in uniting family historians? Are they worth trying? Which types of sites are most likely to be around in the long term?

Come early. BIFHSGO members can pick up the Spring Anglo-Celtic Roots, hot off the press. You don`t need to be a member to come to the presentation, browse and ask questions at the Discovery Tables; meet family history experts;  enjoy some coffee, tea and cookies.

The program for the annual BIFHSGO conference, September 16-18 at Library and Archives Canada, will be announced atthe meeting.
