OGS Ottawa Branch February Meeting

The main event at 1 pm this Saturday, 27 February is the presentation Captive Ancestors of North America by Jennifer DeBruin

"Many North Americans can count at least one captive ancestor in their family tree. Riveting, complex and heartbreaking, the captive story is one of tragedy and triumph. As the battle for supremacy over the colonies of North America raged from the early 1700’s and beyond, people were swept up in its wake – many of them children. The audience will be taken on a treacherous journey, exploring the many complexities of life in ancient lands, and the result of French and English claims to its riches."
At 10:30 am the Genealogy: Back to Basics session is "Discovering and Sharing Our History – Our Story"

The Computer Special Interest Group will meet at 3 pm following the feature presentation.

As usual the venue is the City of Ottawa Archives at 100 Tallwood.
