While going around the Internet checking on blogs and conferences, I came across the NGS Conference 2012 speaker's list, and discovered one name which stood out - Ottawa's Alison Hare.
Alison is a member of both the Ottawa Branch of the OGS and BIFHSGO in Ottawa, and has given talks at both groups at their conferences on a number of subjects. This time, she will be part of a panel discussion being held on May 10th at 8:00 a.m., entitled "BCG Certification Seminar".
Other panelists include Laura Murphy DeGrazia, CG, and Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS.
The NGS Conference will be held next year at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio from 9-12 May. This year, the theme is "The Ohio River: Gateway to the Western Frontier".
If you are planning to go to the NGS Conference and take in the panel discussion, and you meet Alison, please say “Hello” to her from us at the GenealogyCanada blog! I am sure that she will represent Canada very well. She is a very popular speaker in Ontario, and I have had the pleasure of listening to her speak numerous times.
