2016 OGS Conference

IP-SIG Flag Logo - SML
The 2016 OGS Conference will be held at the International Plaza Hotel in Toronto, Ontario from June 3 to June 5, 2016.  The conference’s theme is “Genealogy on the Cutting Edge”.  Registration is now open and you can read about the conference, and register, on the Conference webpage.

As for your IP-SIG, we will have the following usual activities:

  1. We will once again have a table in the Expo Hall where you can talk to some of our members who will be manning the table over the course of the weekend, and look at the available research.  This year the Hall is located close to the lecture rooms.  A list of other exhibitors can be found on the OGS Conference website at Conference Exhibitor List
  2. Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is currently tentatively scheduled to take place over the lunchtime break at 12:30 pm on Saturday, June 4, 2016.  Members will be advised of the exact location we are allotted at the conference, and a link to the AGM agenda will eventually be posted here.  Based on the feedback we received from our member survey last fall, for the first time we will be making arrangements for IP-SIG members who are not able to attend in person, to join via conference call. Details on this will be sent out in late May.
