OGS Ottawa Branch November Meeting

The feature presentation on Saturday 28 November is Documenting the History of Rural Schools in Lanark County 
"After working for over 8 years to collect the stories, photos and records of the rural schools of Lanark County, the volunteers at Archives Lanark compiled and published books on 5 townships in 2010-2011. Their interest was renewed when they were successful in winning a legacy grant of $2500 in 2014 from the Ottawa Branch of the OGS to produce 3 more books within the next year.
The coordinators - Marilyn Snedden, Irene Spence and George Stewart - will described the problems and successes in producing their books on Ramsay, Drummond and Packenham as they fulfilled their mandate of the grant application."
The meeting will be simulcast  at

The presentation is live at the City of Ottawa Archives, Tallwood Drive, at 1:30 pm preceded by networking and refreshments at 1 pm.
