Are you any of going to the Ontario Genealogical Society Conference (OGS) May 14 to 16, 2010 in Toronto?

It looks like a great line up of speakers who will be teaching everything from Inferential Genealogy (click to find out what that is!), to dealing with record shortages, case studies, Ontario Crown Land Records, How to avoid being duped on the internet, Beginning Genealogy, Genealogy Podcasts and more.

Below is the list of speakers (from the webpage) as of February 17.  What an opportunity to hear experts speak on their favourite topic – genealogy!

  • William (Bill) Bienia
  • Ruth Blair
  • Ruth Burkholder
  • John Philip Colletta
  • Lisa Louise Cooke
  • Rick Crume
  • Susanna De Groot
  • Melissa Ellis
  • Amy Wachs Fellner
  • Karolyn Smardz Frost
  • John A Geck
  • Alison Hare
  • Thomas W. Jones
  • Elayne Lockhart
  • Mary Nash
  • Janice Nickerson
  • Dave Obee
  • James Onyschuk
  • Marian Press
  • Linda L. Reid
  • Rick Roberts
  • Gary Schroder
  • Fawne Stratford-Devai
  • Marueen A. Taylor
  • James F. S. Thomas
  • Glenn Wright

It is a large conference and lots of genealogy learning involved.  There are pre-conference archives tours and Toronto’s Irish Heritage Bus tour.  Dutch and Italian ancestry will be featured along with a session that would definitely interest me:  Quebec Church Records.  I’m still working out our KERR story in Quebec.

And more.  Lots more.

If you live anywhere close, consider going to Toronto in May for this conference.  Registration is on OGS conference website.
