I'm unsure if it's too late to participate in Saturday 19 December's OGS Ottawa Branch meeting.
"The December meeting will be a little different! It will be late-lunch potluck and everyone will be encouraged to share their favourite book or resource they have used in their personal genealogy research. In order to eliminate the possibility of everyone bringing something similar, please contact Heather Oakley at firstname.lastname@example.org with your food contribution. We'll all share food, information and some Christmas cheer!"Also scheduled at 10:30 am is a Genealogy Back to Basics session with Mike More on "7 Common Genealogy Research Mistakes to Avoid" and the regular computer group meeting at 3:15 pm (+/-) following the main event.
