BIFHSGO Virtual Fall Conference – September 28 to October 2

Ottawa: 20 April 2022—England and Wales: at home and on the move is the focus of the 27th and second virtual family history conference presented by the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO), to be held virtually from 28 September to 2 October 2022.
Twelve expert speakers will discuss topics ranging from finding elusive ancestors in London, through using maps in your research, to domestic or international migration in and out of Wales. There will be stories of the plucky women who made new lives overseas after their husbands died in the Great War and life as a ship’s steward travelling the globe.
The conference will also feature a virtual Expo Hall, where you may make contact with organizations offering products or ideas to help your research.
A bonus feature of the event is three Connect Sessions, where speakers, vendors or societies will be available for two hours to answer registrants’ questions or discuss their offerings.
Both novice genealogists and seasoned family historians will find tips on furthering their research skills and the motivation to expand their family history story. Whether you attend the live sessions or watch the recorded sessions later at your convenience, you can enjoy our virtual conference.
“Our first virtual conference was a great success, and we expect attendees to find this year’s event just as interesting and helpful,” said BIFHSGO President Duncan Monkhouse.
The C$40 conference registration fee includes the 12 presentations, the Connect Sessions, and access to the presentation videos and handouts until 31 October. Visit their website for the full speaker and program details and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
