Ottawa Branch OGS May Meeting

The main event for Ottawa Branch this month is the presentation on Rideau Remembers, multi-year effort of volunteers led by Owen Cooke for the Rideau Archives Branch, City of Ottawa Archives, and the Rideau Township Historical Society (RTHS) to identify and document the lives of 45 soldiers and one nursing sister with ties to North Gower and Marlborough who perished in the First World War. Here's information about the Rideau Remembers publication.

The session starts at 1 pm with networking and announcements.

The morning (10:30 am) event is a genealogy drop-in. The computer interest group will meet following the afternoon presentation.

All Ottawa Branch monthly presentations are open to the public at no charge.
