Well done. All aboard for 2016!

Wow! What a whirlwind train trip we have had over the three days of Conference 2015. By the smiles on their faces, we know that attendees enjoyed their travel time with us—and have made some new friends, learned some new techniques and explored new leads for their research.

As this year’s conference pulls into the station, we would like to thank everyone who has helped in any way for a job well done. Our student volunteers, our local volunteers, members of the organizing committee, registration workers, ticket takers, session hosts — it takes a village to produce a conference and we have had a great community of people to support us.

The countdown to next year’s Conference is just beginning.

The 2016 theme is “Genealogy on the Cutting Edge“. The goal is to offer a fresh and original program that will showcase the latest developments and discoveries in family history research—from records, repositories and databases to methodology and technology.

Two internationally acclaimed genealogy experts have already confirmed that they will be speaking at Conference 2016. “The Legal Genealogist” Judy G. Russell and genetic genealogist CeCe Moore will both be making their debut appearances in Ontario. If you are a potential speaker, please note that the Conference Committee is now inviting proposals for presentations.
