The Ontario Genealogical Society Virtual Conference 2022, June 24 – 26, Ottawa

June 24 – 8:30 PM – Genealogy Fireside Chat

Moderated by Heather Oakley and Roger Robineau

Genealogists are a social bunch – and love sharing their successes, tips, and genealogy resources.  On Friday night, June 24th at 8:30 pm, registrants at Ontario Ancestors’ annual Conference will have an opportunity to do all that!  Heather Oakley and Roger Robineau will be hosting a moderated discussion.  They have a few topics in mind but they are going to let the discussion be as free as possible.  This is the time for all you people missing in-person events to have a chance to share, meet new people virtually, and maybe have a EUREKA! moment or two.  Some topics they may cover include:

  • “Assuming Facts Not in Evidence” on websites, e.g. Find a Grave.  How should we treat information that has presumably been researched by somebody but is not actually sourced?
  • How many of you have used TONI?
  • Tips and tricks for finding a mother’s maiden name
  • Ethics and Privacy:  When does a responsible genealogist put info online?  When a person is dead?  How long after death?

Do you have a topic you want to discuss with other genealogists?  Register for Conference 2022 and join us Friday night, June 24th after our Keynote Presentation at 8:30 pm.
