Ottawa Branch OGS 22 February Meeting

The Genealogy Lunch Bunch Session at 11:30 am is an Introduction to The Ontario Name Index (TONI) — an OGS project to index personal names from Ontario’s genealogical and historical records.

The 1:30 pm main presentation has Michael McBane speaking on Irish-born John Egan, one of the foremost men in the timber trade along the Ottawa River.

Michael McBane is a fifth-generation descendant of Irish peasants who settled in the Pontiac. You may be interested in an article he authored more than 20 years ago: "Irish Famine Stories in the Ottawa Valley" available in a collection through the Internet Archive.

All welcome at the City of Ottawa Archives.
