Our Branch Website Selected Best for its Design, Timeliness, Unique Content and its Blog.

This information was received as the summer hiatus was beginning.
Unfortunately it was not noticed but just this week it was discovered.
Congratulations to Branch Webmaster Dan Delong.

Below is from John D. Reid on his Anglo-Celtic Connections website:

"The best OGS branch website. Three of the Ontario Genealogical Society 30 branches stand out for their web sites. Each branch has a web site. Most provide basic information about the branch and its programs. A few show the hallmarks of considerable work that has gone into the site -- they deserve recognition. This evaluation wasn't exhaustive, but it did have criteria: design, timeliness and unique content.
The three OGS Branches (in alphabetical order) that stood out from the others are:(drum roll)
Durham Region, Quinte, and York Region. There was another near miss.

And the best site:(drum roll)
Durham Region: Unique resources, a blog and RSS feed make this well designed site the best overall."
