Ottawa Branch OGS March meeting

Ottawa genealogists know that there are a few local speakers you grab the opportunity to listen to whenever possible. One is Alison Hare who is the speaker for this evening's Ottawa Branch meeting at Library and Archives Canada.

"The Time of Cholera" is about London’s cholera epidemic of 1854, best known as the story of Dr. John Snow, a water pump and a map. But who were the people who died? Alison, whose ancestor died in the epidemic, describes her quest to identify the forgotten victims.

The meeting convenes at 7:30pm. Juice and cookies will be available before the meeting, at 7:00pm.
