OGS 2012 Conference - Call for Papers
The Ontario Genealogical Society's Region VIII (Kingston, Leeds & Grenville, and Ottawa Branches) will host the Society's annual conference on 1-3 June 2012 at St. Lawrence College, Kingston Campus. The conference theme is Borders and Bridges: 1812 to 2012 - chosen because the War of 1812 was a border dispute between England and the United States.
Issues such as border crossings; land settlement and pension records (on both sides of the border) of participants in the war of 1812 and other wars; immigration and migration; and genealogical resources in areas bordering eastern Ontario as well as in Ontario will be among the topics covered by speakers at the Conference. Also, genealogy is about making connections between people and families, including bridging gaps using DNA and other modern technologies.
If you are interested in being considered as a speaker, please see the Conference 2012 webpage for more information. Deadline for submissions is 15 January 2011.
