Panel and AGM to be Web-streamed

Can’t attend conference?  Here’s an opportunity to see what you’re missing.  We are web-streaming live our Saturday morning Panel Discussion, Tracks through Time.  Genealogy, by its very nature, is “tracking”.  Our moderator, Thomas MacEntee and panelists Richard M. Doherty, Dr. Maurice Gleeson, Kirsty Gray and Dave
Obee will discuss challenges, concerns and opportunities related to tracking our ancestors and leaving behind our own tracks to follow. To see and hear the discussion live, click on this link.  The session starts at 8:30 am on Saturday, May 30th and can only be viewed live – there won’t be a recording!

For members of the Ontario Genealogical Society, we will be live-streaming our Annual General Meeting on Saturday, May 30th at 9:45 am.  If you can’t get to conference but want to hear what’s happening with the Society, tune in by clicking on this link to view the meeting live.

The Schedule of Fast Tracks is now available through the Marketplace page on the website.  Check it out to see if there is a presentation that you won’t want to miss, since the seating in Fast Tracks is very limited.  The Fast Tracks theatre will be located in Marketplace.

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.  :-)
