Passing along a couple of comments about the OGS annual conference just ended in Durham College, Oshawa. I didn't attend.
First the positives. An informant had good things to say about presentations by Janice Nickerson and Jane MacNamara. I also heard from a graduate of the National Institute of Genealogical Studies that the awards ceremony that employed remote video capabilities went well.
Now the negatives. There was too much walking involved, and the marketplace too remote from the lecture rooms; that's been a comment about the last three OGS conferences, and I seem to recall it was the case last time the conference was at that location. Also the food was not particularly good.
Thanks to Gwyneth Pearce for tweeting some of the conference happenings. OGS announced on the Society blog there would be tweets from @ogslib. In the event only four were made - its not unusual for people to become too occupied with other things to tweet.
Did you attend? Please leave a comment.
Next year the OGS conference is in St Catharines in early May.
