2018 OGS Conference

The 2018 Ontario Genealogical Society’s annual Conference is being held this year in Guelph, in Rozanski Hall at the University of Guelph (98 Trent Lane, Guelph, ON), from June 1st to 3rd Registration is now open for this conference. 

As for the IP-SIG, we have the following activities planned:

  1. We once again will have a table in the Marketplace, which will be manned over the course of the weekend by IP-SIG members, where you can get information regarding the Irish Palatines, and have a chance to look at the available research.
  2. This year, one of our members, Carolyn Heald, is a conference presenter. Her presentation is number 5 of Sunday afternoon Session 3 (from 1:00 to 2:00 pm) and is called “Irish Palatines in Quebec: Final Destination or Whistle-Stop on the Way to Ontario?” Make sure you sign up for this, especially if you plan on joining the ( 2018 In the Footsteps of Our Irish Palatine Ancestors Tour)
  3. As usual, in conjunction with that event, the IP-SIG will again be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM).  Our meeting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 2, 2018 at 11:30 AM (bring your lunch!).  Further details on this meeting will be sent to all IP-SIG members as they become available to us from the conference organizers (tentatively in May).  Please note that it is not necessary to be a registered attendant at the conference in order to attend our AGM.
