Although our raison d’etre is genealogy, the OGS also works with and supports other non-profit organizations whose mandate is to preserve and make accessible Ontario’s heritage. One such organization is the Ontario Heritage Fairs Association.
Every year, this Ontario non-profit works with schools across the province to hold regional heritage fairs,where students in grades 4 -10 research and create heritage projects. OGS supports this initiative by providing a prize for the best genealogical project at each regional fair, with the aim of encouraging our future genealogists and historians.
This yearâ€™s Provincial Fair is in need of funding and to this end, the OHFS is running a crowdsourcing campaign. If you wish to support the work of the Association and to fund another Provincial Heritage Fair in the spring of 2014, please visit them at: https://chimp.net/groups/ontario-provincial-heritage-fair
