Congratulations to BIFHGSO

At Saturday's Annual General Meeting the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa reported the final membership figures for 2011. There were 547 memberships, comprising 629 people when family memberships are taken into account. That's record membership reversing a slight decline from 530 in 2007 to 516 in 2010.

AGMs rarely attract a large crowd and the attendance on Saturday was down from the 150-215 range typical for recent monthly meetings.

All four directors whose terms expired decided to run again, as did president GlennWright. They were all returned by acclamation. The Society is fortunate to have the winning team continue in place.
