OGS and The Ontario Heritage Fairs Association: Looking to the Future to Perserve Our Past

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

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 year’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
