Announcing a New Certificate Design Competition

Create a design for a new Heritage Society certificate for The Ontario Genealogical Society.

As an addition to our current heritage clubs and societies, OGS is developing the Fathers of Confederation Society for those who can prove they are descended from one of Canada’s iconic Fathers of Confederation.

We need a striking certificate for members of the Fathers of Confederation Society to proudly display.
Prize: $500
(donated in memory of Mike Brede)

Design Criteria
