Gordon Taylor RIP

I'm sorry to report the passing of Ottawa genealogist Gordon Taylor, on Saturday August 28.  He was in hospital for less than 24 hours and died of a heart attack.

Gordon served on the Board of the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa, and as President for one term from 1996. He was a member of the Society Hall of Fame.

Gordon was a forward looking researcher having taken an interest in genetic genealogy at an early stage. He continued to contribute a column, The Printed Page, to the Society Quarterly Chronicle, Anglo-Celtic Roots, up to the most recent issue.
A memorial service is planned for Saturday September 4.  Details will appear in the Ottawa Citizen later this week.
