OGS Ottawa Branch June Meeting

On Saturday, 23 June experience a three-course genealogical meal with OGS Ottawa Branch.

Hors d'ouvre, served at 10:30 am, is a Genealogy: Back to Basics session on Evaluating Your Evidence. Mike More will provide tips on evaluating the information that you have found.

The main meal, served at 1:30 pm, following 30 minutes to savour delights to come, is a presentation on the North Grenville Historical Society by Dr. David Shanahan.

Stay for dessert at 3 pm with a meeting of the Computer Special Interest Group.

It's all at the City of Ottawa Archives, 100 Tallwood Drive (Room 115); there are (mostly) non-fattening refreshments and no dishes to wash.

You can get a refill of genealogy through the summer with drop-in sessions at the Nepean Centrepointe branch of the Ottawa Public Library, in conjunction with Ottawa Branch, on 26 June, 10 July, 7 and 21 August and 4 September.

John, due to a late cancellation, the speaker in the afternoon will be Irene Robillard: Using the WI Tweedsmuir Collections for Family History Research. This presentation will look at the wealth of genealogical and historical information contained within the award-winning “Tweedsmuirs” of the Women’s Institutes (WI) in Ontario, such as pioneer families, farm histories, newspaper clippings, and photographs. The presentation will also explain how to find and access these collections, both in paper and in digitized format, including their Virtual Archives site.
