National Genealogy Conference Cancelled

The following was received from Heidi Wilker, organizer of the proposed Canadian National Genealogy Conference

"Regretfully, we must cancel the National Genealogy Conference in Canada for July 17-19, 2015.

Many thanks to the planned speakers for their willingness to support an inaugural national genealogy conference in Canada, to the companies and organizations who were willing to support the conference through sponsorship, and to those who generously helped to spread the word to their network of genealogists."

Although no reason is given I strongly suspect there was insufficient interest expressed by way of registrations to warrant the expense.

There has been some discussion of broadening the scope of the Ontario Genealogical Society conference in 2017, to be held in Ottawa during the year-long celebration of Canada's sesquicentennial.
