OGS supporting The NextGen Genealogy Network

The following is extracted from an OGS media release.

The NextGen Genealogy Network (NGGN) and the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) are pleased to announce a new partnership. OGS is providing NGGN with financial support, together with promotional support in the OGS weekly online newsletter, eWeekly, together with an information page on the OGS website.
NGGN, a United States based 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization was founded in 2013 to create a community for young genealogists. Building connections and fostering engagement among young genealogists eighteen to fifty, NGGN strives to build connections between generations, and welcomes the friendship, mentorship, and support of our fellow genealogists of all ages.

Thanks to OGS Director David Thompson for the tip.

Its a very nice idea. Too bad the OGS could not initiate a comparable CANADIAN Group. Perhaps it could start small under the OGS umbrella, and with OGS support, be encouraged to grow.

I am sure that The Society would welcome anybody who wanted to take on the task of starting a comparable Canadian group.

Good luck with that. It is a good idea but would be faced by several headwinds. Ten provinces....ten logical leaders of the Canadian organization.��

And a task it would be. I first think of the headwinds to be faced from the other Provinces at the thought of a Canadian Society based in Toronto.😎
