OGS Conference '09

As many of you know, I will be Twittering and blogging from this year's conference! The first time an OGS conference has been covered in this manner!

The conference will be held from May 29th to June 1st in Oakville (part of Toronto), with well over 700 attendees.

Friday morning — after we register — I will be off to the marketplace while other people will be going on a tour of the NEW Ontario Archives.

In the afternoon, I will be covering the Irish Palatines, where Hank Jones will speak (he has written much about the Palatines), and after that, I will attend the graduation ceremony of the National Institute for Genealogical Studies, which is, by the way, celebrating its 10th anniversary.

The opening ceremonies will be held in the evening, and well-known genealogist Kory L. Meyerink will give the J. Richard Houston Memorial Lecture, with a reception to follow.

So watch for my Twitters and keep an eye for the blogs - I'll see you at the conference!
