If you can’t attend the annual Ontario Genealogical Society 2015 Conference in Barrie, Ontario, there is an opportunity to see what you’re missing. They will be web-streaming live their Saturday morning Panel Discussion - Tracks through Time.
Their moderator, Thomas MacEntee and panelists Richard M. Doherty, Dr. Maurice Gleeson, Kirsty Gray and Dave Obee will discuss challenges, concerns and opportunities related to tracking our ancestors and leaving behind our own tracks to follow.

The session starts at 8:30 am on Saturday, May 30th and can only be viewed live – there won’t be a recording!
