Ottawa Branch OGS April Meeting

For those interested in local history I can recommend Howard J. Simkover's presentation at Ottawa Branch OGS' meeting on Saturday, 28 April (1:30 pm) George A. Snider, his sign, and his family which I heard last year at the Historical Society of Ottawa.

In 2011, a building on Bank St. was removed from the block between Laurier and Slater. The opening up of this space revealed a sign (G.A. Snider, Photographer) painted on the side of a three storey, redbrick building at the southwest corner of Bank and Slater.

Any talk by Kyla Ubbink is to be recommended. Kyla will present Preserving Family Archives in the Genealogy: Back to Basics session at 10:30 am.

As usual the presentations are on the last Saturday of the month at the City of Ottawa Archives, 100 Tallwood Drive (Room 115), to be followed at about 3:00 pm by the computer interest group meeting.

John, we aim for the 4th Saturday of the month, which is usually the last Saturday but not always. The May meeting has been cancelled as we cannot get a roomin the City Archives due to other bookings and the long weekend, so next will be 23 June, then 22 Sept. The calendar of Ottawa branch events is available at Thanks for putting the word out.
