In just over two months, it will be time for the Ontario Genealogical Society Conference with the theme Genealogy on the Cutting Edge. It is being held near the Toronto International Airport at the International Plaza Hotel. The conference committees of the Toronto Branch have been working hard on the plans for this event. The dates are evening of June 3 to 5th although there is a pre-conference on the Thursday and tours and research activities on the Friday. The Expo Hall is also a must see during the conference.
On the Thursday, June 2nd, the Ontario Library Association is hosting a full day of workshops. The Ontario Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists is hosting a half day of professional business skill workshops.
Don't delay in registering for the conference. There has been terrific response to the conference and some workshops, etc. have limits. Accommodation information can be found here and rooms are going fast.
Although, I have been focusing on upgrading my skills through webinars this year, attending a conference also gives me the chance of interacting with other genealogists and visiting the vendors and OGS branch tables in the Expo Hall.
