The second annual Kawartha Conference in Peterborough, Ontario will be held by the Kawartha Genealogical Branch on Saturday, October the 3rd, and they are putting out a call for papers.
The theme of the conference will be Military Settlers and the organizers are seeking papers on all aspects of the settlement of British discharged military in Ontario.
In particular they are seeking papers on -
- the situation (economic and political) in the UK that caused military people to emigrate
- the military situation in Canada that encouraged military settlers the economic situation in Canada how the military emigration took place
- the results
- where the documentation is
This will be a one-day conference with five speakers, each of one hour.
Please send a brief outline of your paper to email@example.com by April the 30th.

This is a conference that I am thinking of attending because the subject is so unusual, and the Kawartha Genealogical Society should be congratulated for thinking of having a conference on Military Settlers.
