NEWSFLASH: OGS Extends Early-Bird Deadline! READ ALL ABOUT IT!

Early-Bird Registration for OGS Conference 2105 in Barrie has been extended until 10 April 2015. The recent finalization of the Conference Tours necessitated the change to give more time for registrants to sign up. Those already registered will have the opportunity to order tours as well​. The Conference Committee also felt that the late departure of Winter from most of Canada had prevented many people from thinking about travelling, and for those who have managed a winter escape, we offer the opportunity to focus on their spring upon their return.  :-)

Session S-28 Speaker and Topic Have Changed

Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to change session S-28.  Our new speaker for this session, on Sunday at 1:00 pm, is Vicki McKay, presenting “Pie​cing Together a Shattered Family“.  Check out the full description on the Sunday page of the website.

Join us on our journey

Hi, everyone, and welcome aboard!

The Ontario Genealogical Society is hosting our 2015 Conference, Tracks through Time, at Georgian College in beautiful Barrie, Ontario from May 29 to 31, 2015, and we hope you’ll come along on our journey.

Over the course of three days we’ll have eight workshops and 35 sessions to choose from, a Marketplace full of vendors of genealogical delights, and general sessions you won’t want to miss.

Whether you’re on track to discover the places your ancestors lived, or to find out the origins of your surname, whether you’re tracing your family through DNA, or finding them in indexes and records, whether you’re sitting at your computer to research, or visiting old homesteads and local museums, there is something for everyone interested in finding their roots!

Simcoe County’s own City of Barrie is a growing and dynamic city, with an expansive beach-lined waterfront and historic downtown, only an hour north of Toronto or south of Muskoka. Georgian College’s Barrie campus has beautiful waterfront views and an easy-to-get-around environment.

So come and join us on our weekend excursion into family history! All Aboard!
