The Tuesday OCGS meeting is right around the corner!
I was in awe of the talent and knowledge of the membership of the Society when I first joined over ten years ago, and that continues today. Among our membership are numerous volunteers at the Family History Center, several members of the Genealogical Speakers Guild, librarians, and other genealogical research professionals. Add to that the many years research experience logged by our members, and it is an impressive array of talent. There are members, new and old, who often answer questions with regard to research problems, and give ideas and hints to help other members.
To put all that knowledge to work to help you, we have scheduled a special meeting, and on behalf of the Society, I want to invite you to the OCGS Open House / Help Night. There will be help available for various areas, like Ontario, and for various ethnic groups, like England, France, Germany and more. There will be a beginner’s table, too, so this is the perfect time to begin your research, or brush up on basics.
I am very excited about the meeting, because I will be doing something other than just giving the treasurer’s report. I am glad to say that I will be at the blogging table, ready to introduce you to the world of genealogy blogs. I will tell you about blogs, help you figure out how to find blogs to read, and answer your questions. There will be a chance to see how to write your own blog, too.
- Learn how to meet cousins you never knew about!
- Learn how to meet even more cousins by writing something and receiving an answer!
- Meet an actual descendent of a writer of one of the cards in my my Belle’s Box series of posts, and see me present the card to her!
It is pretty cold outside right now, what better way to spend an evening that among the warmth of like-minded family history researchers?
You can read more about OCGS on our website. Please introduce your self to me when you arrive, even if you have not interest in blogging, I love to meet family history enthusiasts!
