This weekend FindMyPast.co.uk is making billions of world records FREE to explore. From 7:00 am EST on Friday 22nd to 7:00 am EST on Monday 25th January 2016 dive into the newspaper archive, birth, marriage and death records, crime collections, and so much more. Go to the website here.
You can register now to take advantage of the early-bird rate which ends on March 15th.
Also, don't forget to book your hotel rooms by following the link from the Conference Accomodations page (http://www.ogs.on.ca/conference/accommodation/). That way you earn the OGS group rate, and the Conference gets credited with generating the room nights (which in turn brings down the costs of our lecture rooms).
We look forward to seeing you at OGS Conference 2016!
On Tuesday, January 5th at the Oshawa Public Library Auditorium, Bagot Street just south of City Hall. Parking is free after 6 pm.
Searching for family history becomes frustrating if you can't locate an essential record, or the records may be from another country (in another language), or a person's maiden name may elude you. Our moderators (and the audience at large) will provide advice, relate personal anecdotes, and point attendees in the right direction to resolve such dilemmas.
This meeting will be streamed on YouTube at 7:30 p.m. (https://youtu.be/TF7fIAZUhWQ) Streaming of last month's meeting was successful, except for retention of the streamed file beyond the 4 hour replay limit. (This time, a back-up recording will be made.)
