Call for Presentations: OGS Webinar Series 2017

The following is an announcement of opportunity from the Ontario Genealogical Society drawn to my attention by Mike Quackenbush, Director at Large of OGS who usually chairs the webinars. Don't be deterred if you know next to nothing about Ontario genealogy. While there is naturally an emphasis on Ontario-specific topics there is also scope for proposals from outside the province, and outside Canada, on relevant generic (and genetic!) genealogy proposals.

The Ontario Genealogical Society is now accepting proposals for the OGS Monthly Webinar Series 2017. We are looking for a wide range of one-hour webinar presentations.

We invite proposals on a wide range of topics, in particular:

Ontario-specific topics (laws, records, land, history, etc.)
Ethnic research (Scottish, Irish, English, African-Canadian, German, etc.)
Canadian military research
Loyalist research
Ontario land research
DNA/genetic genealogy
Methodology and skill-building
Technology and trends in genealogy
Interesting case studies (Ontario specific)
Organization and project/time management

Selected speakers receive an honorarium for each webinar presentation.
Speakers may submit up to three proposals for consideration. All submissions will be reviewed and only those who are selected will be contacted by October 10, 2016.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: October 2, 2016 - Noon (12:00 PM ET) If you have any questions please contact: webinar@ogs.on.ca
