Another Week, Another Genealogy Conference

Posted On: May 25th, 2009 | Posted by: Dean


I’m off to the Ontario Genealogical Society’s 2009 provincial conference this coming week. The event will be held at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, about 35 km down the QEW from the Toronto airport. Genlighten’s booth will be in the Marketplace 1 area of the Student Center.

I’m looking forward to catching up with the friendly folks at Moorshead Magazines, publishers of Family Chronicle and Internet Genealogy. They took me to dinner at last year’s OGS conference, so it’s my turn this time.

I’m also looking forward to having Internet access in the exhibitor area. After I returned home from last year’s event I opened my wireless bill to discover that I’d incurred hundreds of dollars in wireless broadband roaming charges. I’d had to use my Verizon broadband modem for web access since no Internet connectivity was available in the college gym where the vendors were located. This time, we’ve been told that we’ll have access to Sheridan College’s network. I’m optimistic that will work out, especially given the conference’s title — “From the Printed Page to the Digital Age”.

If you’re planning on attending, please stop by our booth. We’ll have plenty of Dove chocolate to share!
