"The Ontario Genealogical Society's 2018 Annual Conference will run from June 1-3, in Guelph, Ontario.

Every year the conference is held in a different place within the beautiful province of Ontario. The 2018 conference will be held at Guelph University.

Our focus of the conference is to educate both members of OGS and non-members alike in the field/hobby of genealogy.

Family historians and enthusiasts looking to expand their knowledge are invited to this weekend event. The OGS Conference is simply a great place to learn from experienced researchers, connect with our provincial wide branches, and maybe even rub shoulders with a few of our well-known genealogists and speakers.

You may even find a distant cousin who has the answers you're seeking, or perhaps you may learn just the trick you require to analyze that document.

Not an OGS Member? Not a problem!
We accommodate attendees who are non-members. You're more than welcome to stop by the Ontario Genealogical Society's table in Marketplace and check out if becoming a member is for you.

Want to become a member before you attend? You're not alone! Visit our OGS website and get signed up for special discounts: https://ogs.on.ca/membership.php"
