NYG&B and the Ontario Genealogical Society Announce Partnership

The following is an extract from a 28 July press release received from OGS Director David Thompson.

Today the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society (NYG&B) and the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) announced a new partnership offering reciprocal membership at a discount to all members. The two societies hope that this will allow their respective members to gain access to even more records and resources.

NYG&B President, D. Joshua Taylor noted “The NYG&B is delighted to partner with OGS. Numerous New York families had connections with Ontario and we look forward to working together to provide resources that help share and tell their stories.”

OGS President Patti Mordasewicz said: “We are excited to announce this expansion in our advantages of OGS membership for our members and to partner with the NYG&B. Our respective members should benefit greatly from enhanced access to resources for researching their Ontario and New York family histories. This is of particular importance when traditional migration and settlement patterns are considered.”

To get more information on this partnership and how to sign up for membership in either organization, please visit nygbs.org/ogs or https://ogs.on.ca

Comment: Another valuable benefit of OGS membership. Members can sign in under the Members Only tab to find out about other available discounts such as for a JSTOR subscription.
