Over the past year, many Canadian societies have found new locations in which to hold their meetings.
The latest society to find a new venue is the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO). They moved from their former home at the Library and Archives Canada in downtown Ottawa to The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa (formerly Nepean).
On Saturday, March 14, 2015, there will be their regular meeting, and then in the afternoon, they will have a special speaker from the Ulster Historical Foundation (UHF).
The morning session is free, as usual, but the afternoon is offered for a fee of $10 per head.
Tickets will be sold at the January and February BIFHSGO Monthly Meetings and will also be for sale at the door on the day for as long as they last. Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets early (and from personal experience, please do) to avoid disappointment.
The two speakers from UHF presenting the series of lectures are Gillian Hunt and Fintan Mullan.
