To find out more on each presentation, registration for each presentation which would have cost $20, go to http://www.ogs.on.ca/conference/program/live-webinars/.

Comment: These days many webinars are available freely, including upcoming ones from the Southern California Genealogical Society, see here. Others, notably genetic genealogy presentations recorded by Maurice Gleeson, are available on a delayed basis. OGS again demonstrates how out of touch it is with the family history world online today by charging for these presentations.
