Ottawa Branch OGS will host Gene-O-Rama, our annual mini-seminar, virtually on Saturday, 25 March 2023.

Gene-O-Rama 2023 offers six sessions from four top-rated speakers. Ticket holders can view the recorded sessions until April 30, 2023.

This year, Gene-O-Rama offers something for all genealogists, particularly those searching in Ontario.  Linda Corupe will educate us about the records of Rebellion and Discord.  As genealogists, we know land records are incredibly important and Ken McKinlay will give a presentation on Ontario’s land records.  For genealogists of every proficiency level, Jean Hibben and Nancy E. Loe will present on organization, skills every genealogist needs and how to use the information found in online trees.  Over the lunch hour, drop in to the “Exhibitors’ Chat” with local providers of genealogy resources.

Ottawa Branch OGS was founded in 1970 and is one of 34 Branches and Special Interest Groups of Ontario Ancestors/Ontario Genealogical Society.  Ottawa Branch is “responsible” for Carleton, Lanark, Renfrew, Prescott and Russell Counties. The Branch unites members who seek to learn more about their ancestors. 

Since 1981, Ottawa Branch has hosted an annual mini-seminar.  The original organizers included the late Pat Horan, who organized Gene-O-Rama for nine years while serving on the Ottawa Branch Council.  Since then, many others have followed in his footsteps to bring Gene-O-Rama to Ottawa.
