Last Chance

Looking for upcoming genealogy presentations there appears to be nothing new available in the coming week. The OGS Ottawa Branch presentation What Family Historians Need to Know About Canadian Copyright may well be your last chance to attend a live genealogy presentation before Christmas Day, and even into the New Year.

Speaker OGS Copyright Consultant Elise Cole will review what copyright is and what it protects, and when you need to ask permission to use an item under copyright, no matter the format including print or digital. She will also discuss how to ensure your own creations are protected by copyright. Finally, Elise will explore how to apply Fair dealing, and offer suggestions of other resources to use in place of materials under copyright like Creative Commons.

The free meeting is on Saturday 19 December 2020  at 1:00 PM Eastern Time.

Register in advance for this  ZOOM meeting.

For those who cannot go "cold turkey" over the Christmas period, we are continuing to run the Genealogy Drop in sessions every week: 2pm EST Tuesdays. Bring us a question or just drop by to listen for some tips. (https://ottawa.ogs.on.ca/events/virtual-genealogy-drop-in-2020-12-22/)
