Leap day Open Access to Commercial Genealogy Databases

It doesn't come around often. Take advantage of this rare opportunity!

The Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) and the Ottawa Public Library are hosting the Gene-O-Rama Research Room at the Nepean Centrepointe Library on 29 February.

OGS volunteers will be onsite to help you to get online and research your roots.

In addition to the library's access to genealogy resources such as Ancestry, Généalogie Québec, PRDH, access to other paid sites, including Fold3, Newspapers.com, MyHeritage, FindMyPast and more will be available.

No reservation is required. Drop-in anytime between 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. This is a free programme and open to all, but there are limited computers in the lab.

This is in lieu of research room access at the 35th Gene-O-Rama being held 3-4 April 2020 at the Confederation Education Centre, 1645 Woodroffe Avenue, Ottawa which can no longer accommodate the research facility.

Wow - this never happened when I was living in that area in the 90s...or maybe I just missed it. I long to do something like that here, but we just don't have the resources.
