Canada's largest annual gathering of family historians, the Ontario Genealogical Society Conference, focuses in 2010 on "Essentials, Innovations & Delights". Essentials, because we all need to know the basics when we're embarking on a new area of research. Innovations, because every day there are changes in the availability and accessibility of resources. Delights, because we all need the inspiration of seeing how others have successfully solved their problems. OGS Conference 2010 will be the most star-studded yet, with top-ranked speakers from across Canada and the United States. Three full days, May 14-16. More sessions than ever before. Outstanding keynote speakers. A 10,000 sq. ft. marketplace area. Complimentary Wi-Fi access to Ancestry's global resources throughout the venue. And consider adding Thursday, May 13, for a day of pre-conference activities, including a one-day workshop hosted by the Ontario Library Association, ideal for librarians who work with family historians (or for family historians who work with librarians!).
