Are you on the road to the Ontario Genealogical Society conference? We are and we are looking forward to talking to you about what’s new at The National Institute.
This is an exciting time of the year for us at The National Institute. It’s graduation weekend, and Louise is celebrating! Here’s what you can expect at the OGS conference:
- Librarians at the OGS Genealogy Boot Camp for Librarians are each receiving our course Librarianship: Genealogy Reference Interview.
- Attendees at the Ontario Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists pre-conference meeting, Business Skills for Genealogists are each receiving the course Business Skills: Developing your Career-Choosing a Niche-Part 1
- Join us at 4:30pm on Friday for the First Timers’ Gathering. Everyone in attendance will receive their choice of either a Methodology course or Skill-Building course. At the end of the gathering one lucky first timer will walk away with a package of 9 courses worth nearly $900
- The National Institute for Genealogical Studies Graduation will be held on Friday at 5:30. Graduation cake and refreshments will be served. Not at OGS? You can attend the ceremony from home in the Virtual Meeting room. Please join us in cheering on our graduating students.
- Continuing with the giving… all OGS attendees will receive one of three complimentary courses. Google for Wise Genealogist, Connecting Family- Online and Virtually, or Social Media Tools for the Wise Genealogist. The registration forms are in the registration packet. VERY IMPORTANT—complete the form and turn it in at The National Institute booth. Why is this important? First, because you will then be registered into the course of your choice. Second, at 1:00pm on Sunday, a big draw will take place from the forms submitted. The prize—a full 40 course package.
- The National Institute is sponsoring the closing ceremony at OGS featuring CeCe Moore who is presenting, Lessons from the Cutting Edge.
Don’t forget about all the great presentations at OGS. Make sure to spend time at presentations provided by some of our course instructors including Ruth Blair, James Thomson, Thomas MacEntee, and Marian Press.
