Did I happen to mention the BIFHSGO conference?

Now that Audrey Collins, Helen Osborn and Linda Reid, three of the major out-of-town speakers have arrived in Ottawa I'm feeling a good deal more confident about the success of this weekend's BIFHSGO conference.

There will be blogging and tweeting from the conference by Elizabeth Lapointe, Susan Davis, myself, probably Elizabeth Kipp and others so you can stay somewhat in touch with what's happening.

On Twitter search for BIFHSGO or the hashtag #BIFHSGO.  You might want to try www.backchannel.us with a search for BIFHSGO.

Check out the BIFHSGO blog, Elizabeth's Genealogy Canada blog, and of course Anglo-Celtic Connections.

Friday's highlight will certainly be the Don Whiteside Memorial Lecture with local author and newspaper columnist Phil Jenkins.  That lecture is free and open to all, starting at 7pm in the auditorium at Library and Archives Canada.
