OGS Conference 2015

Program information for the end-of-May OGS Conference 2015 is now available at
Conference Chair Patti Mordasewicz and colleagues have organized an attractive program with something that's bound to please every OGS member, and many others. What are the highlights?

Following the Friday Workshops Kirsty Gray will give the opening keynote “If We Could Turn Back Time.”

Saturday starts with a plenary panel session moderated by Thomas MacEntee which will give everyone the opportunity to hear views from top conference speakers; Richard M. Doherty, Dr. Maurice Gleeson, Kirsty Gray, and Dave Obee on challenges, concerns and opportunities related to tracking our ancestors and leaving behind our own tracks to follow.
Among the presentation that day is a streamed-in talk by Dr Janet Few who will speak on Uproar and Disorder: the Bible Christians of North Devon and their impact upon nineteenth century Canada. The after-dinner speaker on Saturday evening is Dr. Maurice Gleeson, that's my tip for the "not to miss."

On Sunday Dr Janet Few, who was a hit at the 2014 BIFHSGO conference, and is #1 Rockstar Genealogist for Britain and the Commonwealth, will give a second remote presentation "Putting Your Ancestors in their Place: an introduction to one-place studies." There's plenty more, but I'll show my bias by highlighting a streamed in presentation "Doing Family History Research from Your Home" by BIFHSGO Director Ken McKinlay.
