Forthcoming OPL Genealogy Programs

I was set to post about the session Tracing Your Canadian Ancestors in the First World War being offered by the Ottawa Public Library next Wednesday, but it's fully booked. Rather than wait until the following ones are full I'll let you know now about the next two OPL free genealogy programs

Digitizing and Preserving Family Photographs is being offered at Stittsville on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 6:30pm. This workshop will discuss equipment and software; digitization techniques; organization of images, and some projects you can undertake. It's being presented by Kyla Ubbink, owner of Ubbink Book & Paper Conservation so is sure to be popular.

Discovering Genealogy Resources will be presented at Nepean Centrepointe on Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 2:00pm. This workshop will focus on the basic types of print material for genealogy and family history research, and will include examples of resources which are available at the Ottawa Public Library.

Also, advance notice of Doing Research from a Distance being offered at Main on Saturday, April 18, 2015 starting at 10:30am. Archives of Ontario outreach officer Danielle Manning will provide a comprehensive tour of the Archives website and discuss how to use both the website and Microfilm Interloan program to access Archives of Ontario collections from a distance.
