The following announcement has been released by the Ontario Genealogical Society about this year’s conference:
“Online registration is now open for this year’s Ontario Genealogical Society annual conference, “Tracks through Time” from May 29-31, 2015, at Georgian College Campus, Barrie, ON, Canada.
The conference theme “Tracks through Time” originates from the 130th Anniversary of the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway across Canada. Many family historians have their roots in the immigrant laborers who built this railway across our vast country. Other ancestors were tempted by the transportation routes and migration opportunities allowed by its completion. Still others worked for the railway company itself over the years to follow. As researchers, we “track” our family history through time in many ways, always attempting to ensure we are “tracking” the right people from the right line. The variations on “Tracks through Time” are endless.
View program and registration details to join hundreds of other family historians seeking new methods and record groups for “Tracking their Families though Time.”
Follow updates on the OGS website, Facebook and Twitter and watch for video interviews with some of the Conference Speakers on the OGS YouTube channel.”
The addition of the short videos on the Society’s YouTube channel are a great innovation allowing participants the chance of getting to know some of the conference speakers in advance. So far, two such videos have been posted; one featuring Janet Few and a second featuring Thomas MacEntee.
The program has much to offer genealogists, from beginner to advanced.
