On the website of the National Genealogy Conference in Canada at http://www.visiontravel.ca/heidiwilker it says that the Conference has been CANCELLED!
They say that “Regretfully, we must cancel the National Genealogy Conference in Canada for July 17-19, 2015.
Many thanks to the planned speakers for their willingness to support an inaugural national genealogy conference in Canada, to the companies and organizations who were willing to support the conference through sponsorship, and to those who generously helped to spread the word to their network of genealogists”.
So the Conference saga has come to an end. It wasn’t unexpected. Because the cost was too high for most people, and having lived in Halifax for 20+ years, I would go for an outdoors vacation where I could visit the sights, rather than stay indoors at a conference.
So maybe they can come back to underwrite another Comference at some future date. We shall see.
Meanwhile, here are two blogs I wrote on the Conference -
