Registration is still open at QFHS

Johanne Gervais from Montreal is the Publicity Coordinator of the ROOTS 2015 Conference of the Quebec Family History Society, and she reminds me that there is still time to register for this conference. It will be held June 19-21 at McGill University, Montreal.

She also tells me that if you are a vendor and would like to reserve a table at the Genealogical Resources Fair, the cost is only $50.00 for the weekend, which includes a free standard 6-foot long conference table, two chairs, and a tablecloth.

If you would like to advertise in the Conference Syllabus, the cost is $50.00 for a half-page or $100.00 for a full-page advertisement. You’ll need to send me your image for the Ad this week to ensure it gets in the Syllabus. Send all cheques to me (address is below) made payable to the Quebec Family History Society or Q.F.H.S.
