Ottawa Branch OGS offers a genealogical education session prior to the monthly presentation. Genealogy: Back To Basics includes a short (30-45 minute) lecture on a genealogical topic, followed by a Question and Answer session with Ottawa Branch members. If you are new to family history research or need a refresher, come out and join us. The sessions are held on a Saturday at 10:30am in Room 115 of the City of Ottawa Central Archives. Coffee and tea will be available throughout the morning. There is no charge for the session and all are invited to return at 1:00pm for the monthly presentation. Check our website at http://ogsottawa.on.ca/ for details on the morning and afternoon presentations.
For the first half of 2015, we covered Getting Started, Are You a Trust Me Genealogist?, Genetic Genealogy, Lineage Societies and Ottawa Resources. The fall schedule includes Genealogical Resources in Eastern Ontario, the Genealogical Proof Standard anSeven Common Genealogy Research Mistakes to Avoid.
We are looking for local genealogists who are willing to give a Genealogy Back to Basics presentation in 2016. There is no reimbursement other than all the tea and coffee that you can drink as well as the appreciation of your fellow hobbyists.
